Chertsey (Addlestone moor) in Surrey

This is the entire vehicle line up that served here from the late fifties until 1979 the station is practicly unchanged and is home now to more modern machines but by opinion not as good as the ones shown!
The road layout has altered slightly this photo and the others was kindly supplied by staff serving at the station and is reminiscent of a bygone maybe happier time

Two Dennis appliances and a Land-Rover, yes - but don't let's forget the Commer/Whitson WrT second from the left.

Don't think this is entirely accurate as I don't remember Chertsey having an L4T! This may have been a temporary summer thing. I joined Surrey in 1970 when Chertsey was the only station still on 24 hour shifts and did many "standbys" at Chertsey and remember that they had an ET!
