Picture of the Week: 70054 Nottingham Victoria

A nice night time shot of Britannia 70054 Dornoch Firth seen here at Nottingham Victoria, the ex Great Central and Great Northern joint station on a north bound parcels train not long before the station and railway closed. lots of old trollies on view piled up with mail on both platforms, it was always like this at night time on main line stations, we just took it for granted. The GPO staff would suddenly appearing when a train arrived to load up. There’s a nice old signal in the off position down the platform the train is standing at, and look at that stair case on the other platform leading up to the foot bridge.This was a lovely station to visit and watch the trains go through.
October 1965.
