'Control' filming at Great Central Railway 
From The Loughborough Echo 25/8/06, headline 'Film crew visits GCR to shoot cult movie scenes' (GCR is the Great Central Railway from Loughborough to Leicester, recently voted number 12 in a list of the 50 great railway journeys of the world:

"Filming for a new cult movie, based on the life of a 1970s post-punk legend, was brought to Loughborough's Great Central Railway this week. 'Control' is a new, highly anticipated film based on the life of the late Ian Curtis - ex-frontman of the legendary band Joy Division... This week it was Loughborough's turn to take centre stage and film crews headed straight to the Great Central Railway. A spokesman for the railway said: "We agreed to let them do the filming here and, initially, it was just to take a shot of two people walking down the station's stairs. But once they were here and had had a look around, they decided they wanted to incorporate more into it. In the end they made use of other parts of the platform and the trains too!""
