South West Trains Class 450 108 third-rail electric multiple unit, is seen at Brookwood station operating a stopping service to London Waterloo on the afternoon of Sunday the 29th June 2014.
Although it was a Sunday I saw a fair amount of EMU activity on the line - but no freight. It was my first trip to Brookwood station, although I passed through it as a boy in the 1950's behind a variety of steam locomotives on my way to Basingstoke.
And apart from the absence of smoke-stained Southern Railway green paint, not to mention equally smoke-stained railway staff, it seemed as though it had hardly changed a bit.
Brookwood station features elsewhere on this blog under the title, Brookwood Cemetery Station and the London Necropolis Funeral Railway.
The blog post makes for interesting reading if you are partial to a bit of unique railway history.
