Chiltern Railways' new waiting shelter on the London bound platform has now been completed at Haddenham and Thame Parkway station.
The work has taken a long time with what are thought to have been contractual problems (particularly in comparison with the adjacent house construction) but it has been worth the wait.
The shelter is large and easy to access and leave — and should be a lot more comfortable than the previous one on rainy days!
