DO YOU REMEMBER: Gerrards Cross station in the last days of British Rail

 Published on: 13th June 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

This photograph was taken on Wednesday, July 13, 1994, and shows Gerrards Cross railway station, at a time when British Rail was on its way out, and two years before Chiltern Railways would take over.

The station opened on April 2, 1906, and was originally named Gerrards Cross for The Chalfonts. It was constructed as part of the Great Western and Great Central Joint Railway, and opened shortly after the completion of the Chalfont Viaduct that traverses the River Misbourne.

Originally, it had a four-track layout, with the other two tracks being through roads. These were eventually removed in October 1989.

This photo was taken from the footbridge, pointing towards Princes Risborough, and the train was running from Birmingham (Moor Street) to London Marylebone.
