It was on March 27, 1963 that the British Railways Board, chaired by Richard Beeching, produced a report that was to lead to a savage axing of train routes and stations.
So impressed was Marples with Beeching's ideas about drastically pruning the railway network that he asked him, unsurprisingly, in 1961 to join the British Transport Commission as chairman designate of the new British Railways Board - his brief was to 'reshape' Britain's railway system.
Ernest Marples appointed another pro-road transport person, Dr Beeching, to be the first Chairman of British Railways Board in June, 1961, and he produced his infamous report The Reshaping of British Railways (or Beeching 1 Report) in March, 1963.
The arch was razed to the ground before Dr Beeching, chairman of the new British Railways Board, announced his plan, The Reshaping of Britain's Railways, that saw thousands of miles of railways hacked into housing estates, roads, fields or nothing at all.
