Videos of some passing specials

Much as we'd like to, we can't always be at the Old Ticket Office when a special passes through. Those that we do record will be posted to the Culham Ticket Office YouTube channel with links below.

Rather than standing on the platform or on the footbridge we sometimes video trains going by from inside the ticket office platform bay window. This gives a safe and more unusual viewpoint. An alternative is looking over the platform fence by the footbridge steps. Public access to the old platform 2 upon which the Old Ticket Office stands is strictly forbidden by Network Rail on safety grounds. We have become concerned that on a number of occasions the odd person has ignored both the signs and our verbal warnings choosing to stand or set up equipment on the platform outside the office. This is dangerous as trains can pass the narrow platform at high speed and we would encourage visitors to act in a responsible way at all times and to obey all safety notices.

Please note that YouTube has changed the way it works and instead of stopping at the end of the chosen video it now displays a gallery of other available videos. There is no way we can over-ride this as YouTube have removed this option. You can therefore now choose to watch something else from this gallery, or simply close the video screen and, if you wish, choose another one directly from this page as previously.

The collection of videos has grown rather large over the years and in order to make the pages load quicker it has been split into smaller parts.
The latest videos feature here, and there are links on each page to navigate up or down through the collection.
