ATTENTION TO DETAIL
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.”
