Leicester North Station
Leicester North Station
For Belgrave & Birstall. A modern station but of traditional design on the southern terminus of the preserved Great Central Railway. There are plans to extend south towards Abbey Park. The locomotive is former Southern Railways 'King Arthur' class Sir Lamiel with BR livery and carrying number 30777. This was a gala day and serried ranks of photographers are casting a shadow to the bottom right.
