  1. Hi and happy new year! Here’s a short video of a recent explore of Healey Mills marshalling Yard and Dudfleet mill - thanks for watching!
  2. My Visit - This one was quite fun, although there is not many items left to see, its a great walk under Liverpool, with some nice stone and brickwork to see. We arrived quite early, and had absolutely no trouble finding and getting into the tunnel, the rest is best seen in pictures!
  3. At last I get to go to visit a train graveyard! I went to Oakamoor for a look round but even the rails have been taken away from there and scrapped. (non-HD people should press the back button and look at some drains ) Anyway, just before it was dark I managed to get pictures from another location I'd seen on Google Maps. I couldn't get up onto all of the carriages because of a bad elbow at the moment I'm surprised it hasn't been sold off for scrap. It was nice to go inside a proper old fashioned passenger carriage which hadn't been vandalized in any way. First some general shots from walking around...... and my favourite carriage......

  5. It took me a while before I've finally had the time to visit this cool Train. When you step on board, it's like you're traveling back in time... Have seen a lot of repo's from it, so it's hard to be creative. Hope you enjoy it. I gave it a little authentic look. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7
  6. Explored with Raz & Rott3nW00d History By 1920 extensive railway sidings had been developed on the railway line eastsoutheast of Healey, named Healey Mill Sidings. In the 1960s, as part of a modernisation plan, the sidings were re-designed for more efficient wagon load handling. Construction included cutting a new channel over 1,000 yards long for the River Calder south of the original, levelling of the site with over 1 million cubic yards of infill, the re-construction and extension of a road bridge at the east end of the site near Horbury Bridge, the construction of three railway bridges over the River Calder, and diversion of gas and electricity mains. The new yard was built as a hump shunting (gravity) yard capable of handling 4,000 wagons a day. The reception sidings were built west of the River Calder, the main yard was built on the extended site of the former sidings. The main control tower was located south of the main line and the Calder Vale Dye Works near to the river.The yard opened in 1963 at a cost of £3.5 million. The diesel motive power depot at Healey Mills (Healey Mills Diesel Depot or Healey Mills TMD) opened in 1967. After the marshalling yard closed in 1987, the site was used for storage of trains and locomotives. After the privatisation of British Rail the site was operated by EWS; an assessment was made of a future requirement of six long doubled ended sidings and further short single ended sidings. After 2010 the site's use was limited to crew changes; the driver depot at Healey Mills closed in 2012, being relocated to portacabins at Wakefield Kirkgate station after 4 February 2012. Explore & Cildhood Memories; This is certainly not a new one for me, having spent a lot of my childhood in Ossett i was down at this rail yard clambering about as much as i could. I was really quite shocked when i arrived yesterday to find that the place had been emptied!! When i used to go down there were hundreds of carriages and loads of diesel loco's. I remember many a sunny afternoon pretending to drive this bad boys around... I also remember a lot of nettles. Anyway, whilst in the area we decided to nip down for a mooch about and although it wasnt as good as it used to be, i had a good time reliving my childhood If you got this far, thanks for looking
  7. Hello all, Few pics from above leeds on roof tops/car parks Train leaving Leeds Station Cheers for looking
  8. A lot of abandoned trains sleeping at the entrance of a huge forest.

  10. During a fantastic long weekend trip to Hungary with my close friend TBM, and after a long list of annoying failures (the secca in Budapest appears to be very good and in even the derpiest of derps, though usually fairly pleasant and accepting but insist they must let you go), we successfully explored this fantastic collection of Soviet and probably pre-soviet trains, most of them COLOSSAL! And all sadly left to rot in this Budapest depot. It was a relaxed day despite being nestled within the live grounds of a train depot, we kept to ourselves and no one seemed too bothered. I myself am not a huge trainspotter but adored this place. Some trains here have allegedly been used in Auschwitz!! Here we have it, the rotting Red Star trains of Communist Commuting. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 [ And finally…. Well it would have been rude not to when we were in an ex Soviet Union country, and many here who saw my Chernobyl report would have seen the Lada! So we rented this TWO STROKE Goddess TRABANT complete with tour guide who was able to assist with the odd column set up, and take us for some exploring! #A1 #A2 #A3 PM me for rental info, it’s cheap and fun! Anyways, more derpage at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157645948142370/

  13. Evening all, Not a Belgium one but a local place to me. Not a lot of history apart from this is the place where the local railway museum dumped locomotives, etc for restoration or scrapping. Haven't been there in a few years but maybe go back and see how much has changed. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 - one of the crew, just for fun Thanks for looking in.

  15. In January 1995 a small group of enthusiasts, brought together by their recognition of the rapidly approaching end of an era in travel around South London, formed a group to preserve examples of the EPB type trains. For nearly half a century these electric multiple units reliably carried millions of passengers over the Southern Electric network. The EPB Preservation Group (Company Limited by guarantee from December 1998) was born. In mid 1995 we bought BR Standard design 2 EPB [Electro Pneumatic Brake] Unit 5759 which was built at Eastleigh in 1956. It lasted until nearly the end of EPB operation being withdrawn from service on 18th January 1995. Our volunteers are now working at Shepherdswell, its home on the East Kent Railway, to restore 5759 to as near early 1960s condition as practicable. a few of the Goliath tunnel Thanks for looking

  17. The line from Shepherdswell to Eythorne was originally going to be a line running across flat land around a small hill, however due to disagreements with a landowner, the 550 yard tunnel was excavated to make the connection between the stations. Approaching from Shepherdswell, you find yourself in quite a deep cutting, and the tunnel itself has been bored wide enough to accommodate a twin-track, however only half the chalk was excavated inside the tunnel to save on costs. The tunnel officially opened for business in 1912, and closed 75 years later in 1987. The purpose of the line was to serve the freight purposes of the local collieries in and around the area, however passengers were also conveyed between Shepherdswell on the London, Chatham & Dover Railway’s Canterbury to Dover main line, to a junction at Eastry, from whence ran lines to Richborough Port and Canterbury Road. The line from Shepherdswell to Eythorne has subsequently been reopened by a train preservation society, who in the summer months, run trains from Shepherdswell to Eythorne. The train graveyard I presume, houses the trains that the preservation society drive to Eythorne and back. Sadly, some of these trains have seen better days, with grease still covering the wheels, they stand dormant, slowly depreciating hidden out of site behind Shepherdswell Railway Station. Others still seem in useable condition, and one of the trains had scaffolding up the side of it and was getting a new lick of paint. It is nice to see some people are not letting these fine examples of transportation go to waste. I dont think I could ever forget a trip to London as a child, starting off at Dover with the sound of 40 odd doors being slammed all at once.
