Brought tears to my eyes; particularly the ones of Guide Bridge.

Yes, such a shame. The destruction of this line was such a short sighted waste. Only in this country!!

You know, you look at those and you think what an absolute and utter waste. There really was/are some halfwits in positions of authority in this country.

 

Superb photos of an absolute travesty.

Fantastic photos I'm too young to remember the line, but I've heard many stories about the many hours my dad spent on trips to penistone, wath yard and guide bridge, to see an electrified railway close just seems like..... Madness to me

BR made some unbelievably bad decisions but this has to be one of their very worst.  I wonder how much they made from the sale of the tunnels..

 

Good riddance to BR. Lets hope it never returns.

 

Will Woodhead ever see a train again...

 

Fascinating but tragic and infuriating photos. Thanks for sharing them.
