It cost how much?

Oxhey to Euston in 1948

By David Reidy

In 1948 a workman’s early morning ticket to Euston cost 1s 9d [8p] if used before 07.30. There were always long queues on Sunday evenings for the five day tickets. A ticket to Watford cost 6d [2p] return. Anyone visiting the station at 6pm on a weekday would see a formidable number of people returning home from work.
