West Wycombe signal box and station

Photographed around 1905 from the centre of a watery trackbed, two railwaymen pose for Newton's camera at West Wycombe signal box. Linking the station platforms beyond is a plate steel pedestrian bridge. West Wycombe was an existing stop on the Great Western Railway and became part of the Great Western & Great Central Joint line when an alternative route into the capital was secured for the London Extension in 1898, and opened for passenger traffic in April 1906.
