The Bices­ter slip

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

This poster timetable from Padding­ton for Sum­mer 1954 shows the 5.10pm to Wolver­hamp­ton, with its Bices­ter slip call­ing at all sta­tions to Ban­bury and pro­vid­ing them with a faster ser­vice from Lon­don than would other­wise have been pos­si­ble. De­spite this lav­ish ser­vice pro­vi­sion, Ard­ley and Aynho Park closed in 1963, while King’s Sut­ton nar­rowly es­caped clo­sure, hav­ing been listed in the Beech­ing re­port.
