Therefore it seems appropriate to revamp this page with a number of previously unpublished photos I have received and begin with a potted history of Guildford Railway Station and Guildford Motive Power Depot dating back almost 170 years…The original station at Guildford was opened by the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) on 5th May 1845when a six-mile length of single line track was constructed to connect with the London & South Western's main line at Woking; this was followed by another line from Redhill and yet another line was built to join with Farnham and Alton.In 1849, a further branch to Farnham was opened at Ash Junction plus the 'through running' of trains commenced between Redhill, Guildford and Reading; indeed the single line from Ash Junction to Farnham played a big part in establishing Aldershot as the country's most important army camp.With a keen photographer's eye, he captured hundreds of superb images of locomotives and I'm therefore indebted to Richard for his kindness in allowing me use a number of them in various books that I've self-published.During the 1960s Richard led local opposition to the Beeching Axe when, almost at a stroke, Britain lost thousands of miles of its rail network.This of course could not have been achieved without the help of Guildford Borough Councillor, Bob Mc Shee.I must also thank the late Dave Salmon and Richard Greenwood MBE for providing the photographs that are etched on this plaque.

(Below) Guildford station and town (looking in a Southerly direction) taken from a balloon in 1988.In his speech to around 40 people who gathered at the pedestrian entrance to the car park, Geoff Burch said - 'It doesn't seem that long ago when Pat Kinsella and I departed from here aboard our respective locomotives BR Standard Class 5 to go light-engines to Salisbury, not forgetting the other drivers and firemen who left here that day.They were; the late Dave Elston, Bill Brain, Dave Bunce and Charlie Hampshire, all of whom have transferred to that great engine-shed in the sky.Richard has also been a member of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway since 1964, two years after the five-mile branch line was closed by British Railways.Thanks to a lot of hard work by Richard and other volunteers, the line was re-opened in 1968 - and it continues to be run by volunteers of the K&WVR Preservation Society ever since.
