The Three Tommies Unveiled - There But Not There

Tuesday 6th March saw the unveiling of three ghostly figures of First World War soldiers, or ‘Tommies’, at the station. 

The Tommies are part of the nationwide ‘There But Not There’ fundraising campaign.

Designed by Martin Barraud and on display at the station, the six foot high silhouettes will serve as a poignant reminder of the fundamental role British railways played to the First World War effort, including the transportation of troops, aircrafts, munitions, and supplies. They also commemorate the integral role women played in the conflict, employed by the rail industry in positions previously occupied by men.
