No. 465193 trundles into the station on 31st March 2006, the last day of the government-run

concrete platform extensions of 1932. The metal railings here are as old as the main building,
but note that the same design continues over the platform extensions, the vertical uprights
instead being of concrete fabrication. David Glasspool
