I'll go for Carlisle too.

 

Even in BR and more recent days it is a fascinating place.

 

I would love to have seen it pre 1914.

Yes, I know what you mean.

Just been up my railway room to take some pictures and it got hot so I was only in there for 30mins.

Mind you I don't think this lot helped!!!!

 

Twin ceiling lights on

Twin double LED lights to pelmet

and the 150w daylight lighting rig.....(and I find you have to leave in on for about 10mins to warm up and give max illumination)

 

Got hot.

GN - just a suggestion: Can we do Midland north of Leeds as a separate poll? Afterall, we did the southern section of the Midland separate from the southern section of the WCML. Places like Skipton and Hellifield have much merit but they're not getting a look in!

Point taken, we'll do that tomorrow. It's all Carlisle's fault though, hogging most of the votes.

I'll vote for Preston.  It always strikes me as quite a grand station, about the first one you come to on the WCML (gets hat and runs for cover!) and almost continental in its layout like some of the big Dutch stations for example.

I'm going for Carlisle, used to have a wonderful time working brand new 156's from Leeds to Carlisle, and have enough time to walk to a great little bakery 5 minutes away, alas, it closed a couple of months before I came to Australia, almost 30 years ago now.

A runaway winner, Carlisle with 12 votes. Hardly anywhere else got a look in. As requested therefore, today will feature the Midland route from Leeds to Carlisle, which does of course feature, among other things, a rather spectacular and famous stretch of line which I'm sure we all know about.

 

So, no votes for Carlisle again please, its had its moment of glory, but I'll widen it a bit and say junction stations on the main line, rather than just large ones, which I suppose turns on the definition of large anyway.
