Malvern Link Ticket

The railway ticket (above) was issued by the Great Western Railway for third class travel from Great Malvern to Malvern Link. This journey is barely one mile in length and it is possible to see one station from the other.

This old postcard shows the station as it was before much of it was demolished.

166208

Thames Trains 'Turbo' class 166 No.166208 arrives at Malvern Link Station with the 15:53 from Great Malvern to Paddington. The trees on the right hand side of the platform occupy the space where a siding existed until the late 1960s.

Malvern Link Sidings

This waste ground that is occupied by a few caravans was once part of the extensive sidings at Malvern Link. These closed in the late 1960s and they along with an impressive signalbox that once occupied the foreground area of this photograph were removed.

Both photographs were taken by Andrew Smith on 13th September 2002.

This is Collett 0-6-0 No.2244 of Worcester Shed shunting in the sidings at the east end of Malvern Link Station on 7th February 1965.

Collett 2-6-2T No.6129 of Stourbridge Shed has charge of the 18:35 passenger train from Ledbury to Worcester on 31st March 1965. Note the rather nice '2C' plate denoting that this former GWR Shed was now in the London Midland Region of British Railways.

Class 47 locomotive at Malvern Link

An unidentified class 47 diesel locomotive at the head of a 'down' train to Hereford. The 'BR Fire' buckets look rather inadequate should there be a fire but were a feature of most railway stations. Some of the GWR type seats survived into 2010 but not the station awning and all of the 'up' side buildings which were demolished by British Railways and replaced by utilitarian style waiting rooms. The photograph is the copyright of Robert Cooke.
