Below: the Duke makes an impressive sight as it effortlessly accelerates its 11-coach load out of Winchfield.

Finally, for those who may not have noticed it before, the booking hall at Winchfield contains an impressive tiled mural depicting the station in its early days as a temporary terminus of the London and Southampton Railway. It was designed and painted by Susan Ferraby of Winchfield Pottery.
