Signal gantry close to Leicester's Great Central Station

Signal gantry close to Leicester's Great Central Station

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L1754. View along the line on the Leicester viaduct, photographed close to Great Central Station in December 1970. Considering the station was being demolished as this picture was taken, the signal gantry and rails seen here were almost certainly dismantled soon after.
