Original Tickets

In order to ride on the train, you have to buy a ticket. These examples come from the collection of Rupert Chambers, who has dug out three old tickets from the Malvern-Ashchurch branch.

'LM&SR Privilege Ticket No. 1395, Third Class Single, 8th April 1961' Even fourteen years after nationalisation, British Rail were still using up the old batches of tickets produced by private companies.
'Second-Class Single Ticket No. 7564, Upton-on-Severn to Ripple, assumed 24th October 1959'
'LM&SR Child Third-Class Ticket No. 2341, Tewkesbury to Upton-on-Severn, dated 6th May 196X'
'Upton-on-Severn to Ripple, 2nd Class Single Ticket No. 7507, 28th May 1959'
'L.M.&S.R. Third Class Child's Ticket No. 2383, Tewkesbury to Upton-on-Severn, dated 12th August 1961'
'2nd Class Single Ticket No. 3794, Upton-on-Severn to Tewkesbury, dated 12th August 1961'
