(4) Great Central Railway by John Betjeman

We watched the empty platforms wait
And sadly saw it go.
By now the sun of afternoon
Showed ridge and furrow shadows
And shallow unfamiliar lakes
Stood shivering in the meadows.
Is Woodford church or Hinton church
The one I ought to see?
Or were they both too much restored
In 1883!
I do not know. Towards the west
A trail of glory runs
And we leave the old Great Central line
For Banbury and buns.
