Geocache Description:

extending the popular Sidetracked series


Tonge and Breedon railway station was a station at Tonge that served the adjacent village of Breedon-on-the-Hill, Leicestershire, England. It was on a Midland Railway line built in 1874 from Melbourne to a junction on the Leicester to Burton upon Trent Line near Ashby de la Zouch.

In 1930 passenger services were withdrawn and the Midland's successor, the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, was using the line only for freight services. During the Second World War the line became the Melbourne Military Railway. In 1945 the War Department returned the line and station to the LMS.

In 1980 British Railways closed the line and by the 1990s the track had been dismantled. The trackbed through the former station is now part of National Cycle Route 6.

 

CACHE is located near the old platform and buildings - now a cycle route and private residence
