Hundreds of people joined in a weekend of celebrations marking the 21st anniversary of a campaign to save a historic railway station from demolition.

The event was staged at Rushden Train Station on Saturday and Sunday and began with the unveiling of a plaque to mark the anniverary.

Rushden Historical Transport Society chairman John Sugars said: “We were really pleased with the turnout. We’d like to thank everyone who attended. Everyone was saying thank goodness that the station had been saved and we had many newcomers to the town come along who were really interested in what we were doing.”

During the event the crowds joined Dr Busker in singing the Save Our Station anthem which was composed 21 years ago.
