Britain >Midlands >Hinckley Nuneaton


Collected date 25/03/05

Hinckley was the venue for the 2005 Eastercon, so I collected the station on the way there.

On the 28th March, we headed back from the con to the station to find it thronging with people expecting a steam train to pass through. Sure enough, a few minutes later, a Great Western locomotive raced through with a few chocolate-and-cream coaches behind it.
