Key Events from 1966

From the railway archiveThe London Extension is finally closed as a through-route on 3rd September. This leaves a simple service operating between Nottingham and Rugby, via Loughborough and Leicester. The grand and cathedral-like Nottingham Victoria station is closed and will soon be replaced by a shopping centre, leaving the train services to terminate at Nottingham Arkwright Street station.
