Two lost Cheltenham stations

This short video from 1965 shows two lost stations.

Cheltenham Spa St James and Cheltenham Malvern Road were both closed to passengers and goods the following year.

The video brings back memories; what motivated you to put it up?

There were more stations lost in Cheltenham than that. At the same time I remember losing our local Leckhampton Road Station. Non passenger trains still used the track for a while, but later a line that served Cotswold villages (and I think went to Oxford) was ripped up. Only vestiges of the route remain in odd places.
