Train leaving Metrocentre station
Train leaving Metrocentre station
The Metrocentre, opened in the 1980s, is a large out-of-town shopping centre. Although it was built to be easily accessible by car, it is also next to a railway line, and a new station was built so that trains could serve the centre. In this image, a 2-car diesel unit is heading away from Metrocentre station.

As well as shops, there are also leisure venues at the Metrocentre such as the Odeon cinema in the background.
