The railway at Scotland Road, Market Harborough

Or Scotland Road, Little Bowden, actually.

When I first moved here the Market Harborough to Northampton line had closed (I was on the last train in August 1981) but there were still rails in the road where the level crossing had been. In my mind's ear I can hear cars going over them.

This slideshow combines shots of the area today with ones taken when the railway was still open.

Before my time, and before the first vintage photograph was taken, there was a footbridge over the railway line beside the signal box.

You can now find that box, rechristened Pitsford and Brampton, on the Northampton and Lamport Railway.
