Remarks & Notes 
It's time to say goodbye. Nightly 1950' scene at Loughborough Central station on the Great Central Railway (GCR). The station was opened by the Great Central Railway on 15 March 1899, built to the standard GCR arrangement of having an island platform set between the two main running lines. The station was closed by British Rail under the Beeching Axe, on 5 May 1969. Reopened by the Great Central Railway as part of the restored heritage railway in 1974. All stations on the preserved Great Central Railway are set in a specific era; at Loughborough this era is the 1950s. Many artefacts around the station aid in this atmosphere, including original and recreated British Railways posters, British Railways totem poles, a 1950s TV showing 1950s transportation films in the general waiting room, and a display of 1950s platform trolleys and bicycles. Arranged by TimeLine Events for Tanago.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...

Photographs that depict train crews and other railroad employees at work. After all, the trains don't run themselves!

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
