View westward, towards Nuneaton: ex-LNW & Midland (Nuneaton & Ashby) Joint Railway, Shackerston Junction - Coalville - Loughborough (Derby Road) branch. The station and line closed to passenger traffic from 13/4/31, but goods continued until 6/4/64. Here the track-bed is occupied by a conveyor bringing coal from an overcast site (see LinkExternal link ), probably to the Ellistown industrial siding SE of Coalville.
