710272 Widmerpool 19 March 2020

London Overground 710272 passes the remains of Widmerpool station on 19 March 2020, as it heads north along the Old Dalby test track, during commissioning testing. This isolated station closed as early as 1949, and its station building was converted into a restaurant in the 1960s, with various modern single storey extensions sprawling out onto the old platform. As can be seen from this view, it is no longer in use. Note the waiting shelter on the opposite platform. Despite waiting for over one and a half hours, I did not see this train return from the Edwalton end of the line.
