Today marks fifty years since the Beeching Cuts which led to the closure of hundreds of rural railways lines and stations across the country.
The Government of the day was desperate to reduce heavy losses being made by the railway - as people decided to travel more by road. Dr Richard Beeching, who was from Kent, recommended closing more than 2,000 stations and 6,000 miles of track - around a third of the network.
The impact on jobs was massive - 67,000 lost. While it meant fare rises of ten percent for passengers.
ITV Meridian has been doing a series of reports about the cuts and the dramatic changes they made to our rail network, here in the South and South East. Click here to see our reports.
