On June 26th, 2005, steam returned to Midland metals. Jubilee 5690 Leander passes through Oakham Station on the down line. The semaphore signals have gone and the sleepers are concrete with long welded rails, but the footbridge and signal box, clearly Midland in origin, speak volumes about times gone by.
