The Leicester & Swannington Railway in 1964

This amateur film is a piece of railway history as it shows the Leicester & Swannington just before it closed in 1964. The line already looks derelict, so it is a surprise when a train turns up towards the end.

The Leicester & Swannington was one of the first railways of the steam age, built to bring coal to Leicester from the west of the county. 15C has a few photographs of the line today
