Ewell West Station - 150 years

4th April 2009

To mark the 150th anniversary of the railway line from Raynes Park to Epsom and the only station with its original building*  a local event was held at Ewell West Station on 4 Apr 09, raising about £3,000 for local charities.
Four buses ran local services in Ewell (only one of which was an RF); here are a few pictures of the event.
The main service was a park & ride between the station and Ewell Tech (sorry, NESCOT),
whose utilitarian architecture looms through the trees.  Routemaster RM1033 in service.
