Leicester Arrival
Leicester Arrival
45116 brings an express into the outskirts of Leicester from London. The bridge in the foreground carries the line over Lancaster Road. Immediately to the right of the locomotive is an area of open space, in the triangle formed by Waterloo Way and Welford Road, with freshly planted trees - these have grown somewhat since this photo was taken. Behind can be see the cooling towers of Freeman's Meadow power station. Long since demolished to make way for the Walker's Stadium, home of Leicester City FC. On the left in the distance is the Clock Tower at Freemen's Common. See SK5802 for photos of these buildings.
