Love East Midlands Parkway railway station

Love East Midlands Parkway railway station. Can’t think of other railway station in the UK, with a power power station, right behind it!

At the time of writing this (25 October 2022), it’s one of only three coal-fired power stations left in the UK, and is scheduled to close in September 2024.
