The station at Shirebrook, Notts.
The station at Shirebrook, Notts.
There is a story to the scene above. The train had arrived at Shirebrook when the guard walked through the train telling passengers that it was 'game over'. Vandals had cut some signalling wires meaning travel northwards had been curtailed. The train in the picture is changing platforms and is just about to run into platform 2. Passengers were stranded for an hour before the journey back to Mansfield. There's not a great deal to do in Shirebrook...
