Chiltern Railways now runs a frequent service to and from London Marylebone using mainly 168 TurboStar DMU's, one such unit is seen in the 1930's platform on 13th August 2013.
The building to the rear of the unit is a new addition to the station and it is pleasing
to see the style of the original buildings carried through to the new addition.
