Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grimston was a railway station serving Grimston in the English county of Leicestershire. It was opened on the Midland Railway route between London and Nottingham via Corby. The line still exists today as part of the Old Dalby Test Track. The station was opened in 1880 by the Midland Railway on its cut-off line from Melton Mowbray to Nottingham, which had opened the previous year to allow the railway company's expresses between London and the North to avoid reversal at Nottingham. It also improved access to and from the iron-ore fields in Leicestershire and Rutland. Local traffic was minimal and Grimston closed to passengers in 1957.show more
