“Ralway Magazine” cover from October 1976.

Standing at the only platform, in front of the old 1846 Station Building, with the only coach the NVR could muster at that time. For passenger-carrying runs, a brake van was attached as the coach was not fitted with a handbrake!

The shed code plate is difficult to make out, but other pictures around that time show that it was 1A - a nod to Willesden and the exhibition of 1954 where she made her first public appearance.

There’s no footbridge and the loco is not yet fitted with air brakes.
