The work of the Rail­way Her­itage Trust has achieved much more than the dis­tri­bu­tion of grants.

Just as im­por­tant is the way that it has en­cour­aged a dif­fer­ent way of look­ing at sta­tions, a greater con­cern for the of­ten small touches that make a huge dif­fer­ence to the am­bi­ence and feel of a sta­tion.

One ex­am­ple is the en­hance­ment and restora­tion of light­ing in the Grade 2-listed art deco sta­tion at Don­caster.

LNER Cus­tomer Ex­pe­ri­ence Direc­tor Claire Ans­ley says: “Our sta­tions have played an im­por­tant role in the great towns and ci­ties of the LNER route, and we value their rich his­tory.

“That is why we are ex­tremely care­ful when it comes to plan­ning any im­prove­ments, to en­sure that any projects will both en­hance the cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence and be re­spect­ful of the build­ing’s her­itage and ar­chi­tec­tural qual­i­ties.”
