Last week’s post, Riding Through the Leicester Gap, presented some photos from my 1983 trip to England.

Here are a few remaining photos from that roll of film, taken at a different location.

Milton Keynes Central is located on the West Coast Main Line about 50 miles northwest of London and is a relatively new station, opened only in 1982, the year before my visit.

The photos below show some of the activity I observed during my brief visit.

An "up" express (London-bound) is led by 86 224 "Caledonian".
