L2116. Looking west towards the abandoned goods shed at Swithland Sidings, photographed in February 1978, more than eight years after the closure of the Line. Although Swithland may seem rather an unlikely place to have goods facilities, the yard was situated at the junction of the Mountsorrel Railway, a branch line that served a number of large quarries.
