Anyone recognise where we are today?
West Somerset Railway?
Not the best of images, sorry
I'd have been better standing on the (northern) York bound platform, instead of the (southern) Leeds bound
The bridge beyond the junction (left; north-east for York, right; south-east for Selby) is the 'new' A1

Class 44 in the Peak District.
One of my favourite locomotives in one of my favourite places, thanks for that,
A couple from the other day....
Here's a couple more then:
I think it was D8 'Pen-y-ghent' which became the first and last 'Peak' in regular service to travel over the Settle and Carlisle line on my date of birth.
Whilst sorting through some old magazines, & idly leafing through, I found this in 'Steam Railway' (August 1995)
What a contrast!!
Up Pontefract Road?
I've ridden it a few times, since the M1 (as it is now) was opened there
I presume @Archie_tect, @AuroraSaab, & yourself all remember 'Cinder Oven Bridge'?
Ie; the hump-backed bridge, over the wagonway?
Apparantly, the 'name-stone' (from the apex of the bridge) is somewhere in Rothwell Country Park - the one at John O'Gaunts
I've asked a few dog-walkers, & other riders, when I've been in the area, but no-one can tell me where it is
I'll try; http://www.secretleeds.com/

Scroll down to; Charlesworth Inclined Plane
It was always exciting to go up and over that bridge on the double decker home from Leeds when I was little... especially on the top deck at the front.
Yes, I well remember that bridge from my childhood. It would make your tummy flip if you were upstairs when the bus went over it.
My dad worked at the Copper Works so in later years when he had an Escort it would take off going down...
Likewise, on the 446 back to Stanley!!
