Leicester North departure
Leicester North departure
The 09:45 for Loughborough departs with LMS 'Crab' No. 13065 in charge of a rake of coaches in blood and custard livery with a griddle car. The food looked tasty but with a 30 minute wait it didn't fit in with our plans for the morning. The orange bricks mark the original entrance to Birstall Station. This was a typical Great Central island station accessed from the over bridge. The new station is a single platform accessed on the flat. I have never tried this angle before.
