Bilbraborn 1,594 Posted October 13, 2016 Report Share Posted October 13, 2016 My fascination began when I was very young. My dad was in hospital and made friends with a family who lived at Burton Joyce. On our numerous visits to them, the bus went all the way along Carlton Road and the sight of Bluebell Hill Tunnel fired my imagination. I was not happy until I was old enough to go out there and walk the line. Interestingly. My wife's friend lives near Porchester Road. Not long ago she was awaiting the bus into town and got talking with a young lass. She told my wife's friend that she had moved from London and now lives in one of the new houses. She mentioned that she was sometimes kept awake by the sound of trains shunting. My wife's friend told her about the Lincoln Line passing close to Sneinton. The woman said that the noise was much closer than that. She obviously had no knowledge of the old railway buried under her house. I thought it very interesting. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
