Down platform building, Widmerpool station
The sadly derelict down platform building of Widmerpool station. This station closed to passengers in 1949, and the line closed completely in 1968.
This section of the former Midland Railway main line between Nottingham and London is now used as a test track by Alsthom, evidenced by the catenary glimpsed at the top of the picture.
