Geocache Description:

REALLY SideTracked - Upper Broughton


Upper Broughton was a railway station serving Upper Broughton in the English county of Nottinghamshire. It was opened on the Midland Railway Manton direct route between London and Nottingham, avoiding Leicester. The line still exists today as the Old Dalby Test Track.

 

History

The station was opened for passengers on 2 February 1880[1] by the Midland Railway. The station was designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders.[4]

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. Local traffic was minimal and Upper Broughton closed to passengers as early as 1948.[5]
