Market Harborough MML Straightening

Recommended Posts

I lived in Market Harborough in the 1950's & spent many happy years there trainspotting with regular visits to Rugby, Peterborough, London, together with visits to Derby & Crewe including their works.

Has anybody any  photos of the removal of the ex LNWR line to Rugby, the ex Joint LNWR/GN Joint line to Melton Mowbray, ex LNWR sidings & loco shed in the 1960's/70's or a book covering this period?  I would also like to see photos of the removal of the station platforms, reverse curves & installation of the new alignment, the connection at the South end & under the Great Bowden road bridge.  Can anyone direct me to a relevant website(s)?  Thanks.

There's probably a Network Rail time lapse video on line about the most recent work, often linked from Twitter somehow. Don't ask me how to find it though, I only look in the EMT feed sometimes to see what's being said.
