--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The station was built by the Abingdon Railway and the Great Western Railway had operation rights. The relationship between The Abingdon Railway company and the GWR was never a good one and ultimately the Great Western Railway took over the entire branch in 1904.
The line passed on to the Western Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, and was then closed to passengers by the British Railways Board in 1963. However the branch was used by freight, notably MG Cars, and the occasional passenger excursion, the last of which took place in 1984.

The branch track was lifted in the late 1980s. (visit link)

If you want to see photos and other memories from this station look at this web site that is really good and contains lots of good stuff. (visit link)

Try the google earth plug in on the download tab, can see where the line went to join up near Radley.

This contains letter C for the bonus.
Now onto cache 4.
