51916 & 54194 Corby 2 June 1990

Corby station has had a checkered history. Opened in 1879 and then closed during the mass cull of minor stations in 1966. It was reopened in 1987, only to close again in 1990, before finally reopening in February 2009. With a tiny 'RIP' headboard, 51916 & 54194 wait to depart with the 09:00 train to Kettering on the (second) final day of services, 2 June 1990. This view has now been completely transformed, with a much grander station occupying the area on the left. The slightly backwards leaning Corby signal box has also been demolished.
