L1495. Girder underbridge taking the London Extension over the Midland Railway station at Loughborough, Leicestershire, circa 1897. The challenge for the Great Central was to persuade people to use their new Main Line, and take passengers who had become used to travelling on the existing routes such as the Midland Railway. Henry Lovatt of Wolverhampton was the contractor responsible for building this section of the Line (Contract No. 2, Leake to Aylestone).
