The Midland and Great Northern railway architecture was very characteristic and attractive. At the time of this photo, in February 1977, Lenwade was the last example of a fully equipped M&GN station that was substantially intact and still operational for goods. One hoped that when regular freight traffic petered out at the end of 1981, some serious preservation attempt would be made. What one got initially included a stockade built round the station, Keep Out notices and a vicious sounding dog to guard it. Although the trackwork and accessories have now largely gone, the building and platform still remain alongside Marriotts Way.
