About Edwalton Station Opened : 1880 for passengers Services to : Nottingham London - built as part of the Midland Railways direct route to the capital via Melton Closed : 28th July 1941 History The station was opened for goods on 1 November 1879[1] and to passengers on 2 February 1880[1] by the Midland Railway. The station was designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders.[2] It was on its cut-off line from Melton Mowbray to Nottingham, which had opened the previous year to allow the railway company's expresses between London and the North to avoid reversal at Nottingham. It also improved access to and from the iron-ore fields in Leicestershire and Rutland. Following the closure of the line as a through-route in 1968, the line between Melton Mowbray and Edwalton was converted for use as the Old Dalby Test Track. This was used initially for the Advanced Passenger Train project and, more recently, Class 390 Pendolino units. It is currently used for testing London Underground 'S Stock' trains. Edwalton itself was never part of the test track, the line stopping short at the A606 road bridge. The site today has an up market housing development built upon it. The Cache a small sample pot
