The island platform viewed looking north west on 28 July 1973 a rail blue class 116 3 car DMU stands in platform 3 with a Stratford-upon-Avon service.Of particular interest in the picture is the ex-Western region Totem still in use 4 years after the London Midland Region had assumed responsibility also the lantern above is of a London Midland design. The high level goods shed to the left of the train had closed in November of the previous year and is now being used as a car park.
