L.M.S Class 5 (Black Five) 4-6-0 No.45305 is heard approaching Quorn and Woodhouse along with the sound of bells in the signal box and a motorcycle in the station yard. The locomotive hauling 'The Elizabethan' Dining train, slows, then opens up, before powerfully accelerating away towards Leicester North. You can just hear 0-4-0 Peckett 'Teddy' whistling on the Mountsorrel Branch in the distance.

No.45305 returns with 'The Elizabethan' Dining train and with coupling rods ringing slows through the station before whistling and heading purposefully away towards Rothley. The Signal wires are heard as the semaphore returns to danger.

No.45305 arrives at Quorn and Woodhouse with the last train of the day. The fireman is heard shovelling coal into the firebox. The guard whistles the right away and the imposing black liveried locomotive slips briefly before hurrying away into the fading light towards its next stop at Rothley.

    This is great. I applaud your efforts to capture sounds like this that may one day be lost forever. Good job and thank you! :-)
