Looking under the Upper Broughton bridge towards Old Dalby at the single track used for testing the ill-fated Advanced Passenger Train in the late 1980s. The wooden shed was lifted from the track by a crane on the bridge and hoisted over the waiting room. It then swung round and demolished the corner of the waiting room.

Possibly the oldest known photograph of Upper Broughton station. The original was found lying in a heap of bricks, in the rain, in the centre of the village.
