Bridge 334 - Loughborough Central Station, Leicestershire

L2163. Looking north towards bridge 334, the double span girder structure that crosses the London Extension at Loughborough Central. Passengers would enter the station via the gabled frontage at the centre of the bridge. The Railway had closed more than eight years before this photograph was taken (February 1978). However, the words 'Main Line Steam Trust Ltd' written over the station's entrance, proclaim the beginnings of what is now the Great Central Railway preserved line, an ambitious but successful project that saved a valuable part of our transport heritage from extinction.
