Fixing the poem to the wall.

“From a Railway Carriage” by R L Stevenson is on platform 2 (pictures below). This has been printed in the style of an old railway advertisement.

By kind permission of East Midlands Trains, both platforms at the station have a poem displayed. We are grateful to East Midlands Trains for donating the cost of the display noticeboard and fixing the poems.

Beth came to Belper by train as her late husband had worked for British Railways for many years and rail travel was always her first choice.
