Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leicester Campbell Street railway station was the first proper railway station in Leicester, opened in 1840 by the Midland Counties Railway. Although the Leicester and Swannington Railway had opened in 1832 with a terminus at West Bridge, there was no dedicated station there until 1893. As was normal in those days with a through station, the original plan was to build it to the side of the main line, but instead it was finally built on the main line with a single platform 165 yards long to handle both northbound and southbound trains.show more
