    Ashby de la Zouch

    Just been exploring (virtually speaking) the Ticknall Tramway, which had an interchange siding with the Melbourne Line just north of the Ashby Tunnel.

    PS - I think the last but one station is Shepshed. I only mention it because my dad's family farmed there for several generations, way back before the coming of the railway.
