Last Steam Train at Oundle Station (1964)

The last timetabled steam departure from Oundle station on Monday 4th May 1964, the day it was officially closed to passenger services.

The train was hauled by Ivatt 2-6-2T #41225 which was based at London’s Nine Elms shed at the time. By the end of the same year, the engine had been withdrawn and cut up, just 16 years after being built at Crewe Works.
