Railway history reasserts itself in Market Harborough

This fence came down a few days ago. You might put it down to a spot of overenthusiastic reversing by a lorry making deliveries to Lidl. But I wonder.

Because this fence is exactly on the line of the old LNWR lines from Market Harborough. Soon, I am convinced, the embankment will heave itself from the earth. I fully expect to see trains running again to Rugby and Northampton before the year is out.
