The follow on shot with the photographer now turning around to get the going away shot of Stanier Black 5 Class 4-6-0 nO 44662 on 1M25 the 10.15 Glasgow-London Euston June 1964. Notice Bletchley flyover built in 1956 of reinforced concrete part of the BR Modernisation Plan. In the end the line saw little use and was closed to passengers in 1968 and then mothballed in 1993. It was opened up again in 2006 but only on a short section and the whole structure was demolished in 2020 and early 2021.
