During an exceptionally hot and strangely sunny Bank Holiday, the station 150th Anniversary was attended by hundreds of cheery well-wishers, many in Victorian dress. Aaron and Brita had got the station looking spick and span - not a cobweb in site.
The commemorative plaque was unveiled by Mayor Penny, after an introduction by Operations manager, Stuart.
The special bookmarks and Words Down the Line leaflets disappeared like hot cakes, as did the goodies that The Community Railway Partnership gave out.
The exhibitions of ancient luggage, milk floats, poetry, artwork and photographs all added to the special atmosphere.
