Andover Town Station

A Memory of Andover

Back in the 1950's my father was the signal man crossing keeper at the Andover Town signal box. Trains running from Andover Junction would travel down line to Southampton, crossing the main road by the Odeon Cinema. We lived in a cottage at the level crossing just down the line at Rooksberry Crossing where my mother was the crossing keeper to the crossing gates serving the big house across the line which I believe was Rooksberry House. Anyone with any details or pictures of the above please contact me asap as I am putting together my life as son of a railway man and need your help
