'Leicester station 2016'
A pair of class 20s a class 47 Class 56 104 and Class 56 081 and a class 37 in what was the old Lecester Depot on the 28th May 2018.
UK Rail Leasing (UKRL) is a railway company in that is now taken over the old BR diesel depot site next to Leicester station. It offers locomotive leasing and rail vehicle and its engineering services.
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 next large station to the north are Nottingham or Derby and to the south Market Harborough Kettering and Wellingborough and Bedford
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.
