EDITORS COMMENTS
A Blast from the Past: Cheltenham Spa Malvern Road Station, 2 May 1959 This evocative photograph captures a moment in time at Cheltenham Spa Malvern Road station in Gloucestershire, on 2 May 1959. The scene is one of hustle and bustle as steam locomotive number 31619 passes through the station, belching out plumes of smoke. A lone woman, dressed in a smart coat and hat, walks along the platform, seemingly unfazed by the commotion around her. Cheltenham Malvern Road station opened its doors to the public in March 1908 and was a vital transport hub for the local community. By the late 1950s, however, the station's days were numbered. Passenger services came to an end in 1960, and the station finally closed to all passenger and freight services in 1966. The photograph offers a glimpse into a bygone era, when steam trains were the backbone of the railway network. The station building, with its red-brick fa├žade and ornate detailing, stands proudly in the background, a testament to the grandeur of the railway age. This photograph is part of the extensive collection at the Steam Museum of the Great Western Railway, which showcases the rich history of the railway industry in the south west of England. It offers a fascinating insight into a time when travel by train was an adventure, and the sights, sounds, and smells of the railway were an integral part of daily life.
