Lunchtime at Melton Mowbray Station
I don't drive much these days so a friend took me out on 24th.November last and this short series is just a few shots from that journey round mid and eastern Leicestershire.
Needless to say the final stop on this drive out had to be for a railway and this is the station at Melton Mowbray where services are run by Cross Country Trains, the Eastbound ones heading for Stanstead Airport and the Westbound ones for Birmingham New Street.
We were there in time for these two trains to cross, both being timed for 12.33, although the Eastbound one was actually running a couple of minutes late which helped with the photography no end. For enthusiasts among you the right hand shot has a very nice signal box in it, how fortunate it hasn't been demolished, the rest of the station, apart from the Booking Office is now locked up, oh and the toilets, thank goodness!
