The top spot this week goes to Andrew Knighton’s photograph of the original Ilkeston Junction train station sign.

Andrew sent in the picture in line with work on the town’s new station ready to start.

He said: “I thought with work due to start imminently on Ilkeston’s new railway station, readers might be interested to see one of the enameled metal station signs that would have been seen by passengers using Ilkeston Junction station when it closed in the mid-1960s.

“It would have been situated on one of the platforms - my wife Tara is holding the sign.”
