Videos of old Railway Lines etc

Recommended Posts

This guy has some interesting videos of old railway line walks etc. He explains the history as well as a thorough film of the remains. The latest is Watnall tunnel,

but there are several others of local railway lines amongst his extensive geographic coverage

As kids in the 50s we would catch the train at Kimberley to Basford station and go swimming at the Northern Baths it only cost a few pennies to go there and the smell of those steam locomotives nothing like it. We played in the cutting and in Watnall Tunnel which was about 150 yards from where i lived on Spencer Drive Nuthall, there was a bridge on Spencer Drive on the Basford side of tunnel which partially collapsed around 1960 and closed the lines down for a while. Does anyone have any recollection of this.?
