What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Nine years ago it was this Running in board at Swanwick Junction station at Midland Railway-Butterley (MR-B).
Running in boards tended to be positioned at the end of station platforms and were designed to allow passengers to determine their location as a train entered the station, possibly while still moving at speed!
This example is/was a modern construct as Swanwick Junction station didn’t exist until the heritage line arrived there… I say is/was because the last couple of times I’ve visited there’s been no trace of this particular board.
