Leicester signal box's
The large station at Leicester is on the Midland main line from London to Sheffield. To the south of the station the line to Nuneaton and Birmingham leaves to the west. To the north at Syston junction the line to Melton Mowbray Oakham and stamford and Peterborough leves the MML to the east.
All of the Birmingham to Peterborough and then on to Ely and Cambridgeand onto Stansted Airport stop at Leicester station. How import this station is can be seen by how many passengers get on or off certain trains.
The station today is clean and does the job but it's a pity like Bedford along the line that more of the Midland station was not saved. The old signal and boxes have been replaced with colour lights and most of the sidings along the line have been removed. There is just the one main yard north of the station.
Like other stations on the Midland Main Line there are next train panels giving the present time and when the next train on that platform is due.
