London Road always was the main station (opened in 1892) and the frontage has changed little between 1910 ...
But we must not forget the newest railway station.
here) which runs to Loughborough and has aspirations to extend to Nottingham. The station opened in 1991. Alas, there is no chance of ever reaching the centre of Leicester again as road developments and viaduct removal have obliterated any useful trackbed. So these buffers will be the end of the line for ever.

Well, therein lies the problem. Angels are mentioned in two contexts in the Bible. In heaven, the description is of six-winged "creatures" of a very non-human kind. But that's only to be expected. Heaven, by definition, is outside of our space and time so any description has to be a pathetic half truth, a feeble attempt by human minds to describe a supernatural location. What the shepherds had was, without a doubt, an "out of this world" happening, an encounter with the power of God in a very physical form. No-one should seriously think that they saw pretty girls in white frocks floating in the sky, probably wearing tinsel halos made out of coat hangers!
When angels manifest themselves on earth they are very different. They are described as male (N.B.), gutsy and not at all girly. Wings are never mentioned; there are numerous accounts throughout history of very sane humans meeting "people" who bring a message of protection or comfort direct from God. Their supernatural arrival is always scary and, understandably, they have to say "Do not be afraid".
It is not easy for a thoughtful, open-minded person to dismiss angels as out-of-hand. Mary didn't and she was put in a dire position by hers. The shepherds didn't. So why should we?
