The south bay platforms at Leicester Central, circa 1965.

Most of the London Extension's intermediate stations closed in 1963/64 after stopping services on the route were withdrawn. Following this move, the bay platforms at Leicester Central Station were no longer required and eventually fell into disuse. This image shows the southern bay platforms sometime around 1965. Looking at the rusted rails, it is clear that no trains have used the bays for some time. See on Route Map
