Victoria Junction All change please, all change! A Question of Station The sleepy junction station at Temple Normaton, where the privately owned Woodthorpe Junction Railway meets the North Midlands Railway, has become a hive of activity today as it prepares for the arrival of Her Imperial Majesty Queen Victoria.
Her Majesty is expected to have a meal at the Railway Hotel prepared by the celebrated chef Alphonso O'Brien before travelling on to lay the foundation stone at Duckmorton Hospital.
Hotel manager Henrietta Loverage is understood to be preparing for the Royal entourage to be accommodated overnight should they be delayed at the Hospital, supported by her outstanding concierge Archibald Albright.
Bernard Perks, Station Master, has spent hours preparing the station gardens for the visit. The floral display of the Royal Crest is particularly splendid.
The General Manager of the North Midlands Railway, Wilbert Vere, arrived this morning to ensure nothing goes wrong.
Local magistrate and landowner Lady Augusta Woodthorpe will greet Her Majesty and welcome her to Temple Normanton. Well just as soon as she locates her prize sow - The Empress of Tamworth!
