An historical railway

Richard returned to the rostrum recently, to educate, entertain and inform us regarding a railway close to his heart, namely the Leicester and Swannington. With the cunning we have become used to, the retired law lecturer not only described the history of the line but also intertwined it with an appeal for information concerning how to progress a search for a long-lost relative associated with the line long ago. The resultant discussion did not provide instant answers but kept everyone awake, which is a bonus for our meetings nowadays.
