Finding Mountsorrel station
A year ago the Mountsorrel branch reopened and I decided to go and look for it myself today.
I found Mountsorrel station some way uphill from the centre of the village. A poster claimed heritage trains run throughout the year, but there were no signs of activity. The site was locked up and something of a challenge to photograph,
You can read about the history of the branch and of the effort that went into its restoration on the Mountsorrel and Rothley Community Heritage Centre site.
And you can watch a video of steam on the line on this blog.
