About REALLY SideTracked - Edwalton Station
Second incarnation at this location. due to another cache being archived, I can now place it where i wanted it originally in 2016
The station was opened for goods on 1 November 1879 and to passengers on 2 February 1880 by the Midland Railway. The station was designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders.
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.
