Bowling [CR]: Looking east towards Bowling (CR) station on 02 June 2019 along the trackbed of the L&D. This short tunnel has structure reference number 60 still visible on the east end portal some 55 years after the closure of the line.

Hardengreen Viaduct: A northbound train on the Borders Railway passes Dahousie Mains and crosses Hardengreen Viaduct on 28 June 2018. The ScotRail 0859 Tweedbank - Edinburgh Waverley is approximately half a mile from its next scheduled stop at Eskbank.

Appleby: I was standing waiting for the 1514hrs Northern service to Carlisle on 27th April 2019 and the signal was up. I was rather surprised to see so many people on the platform, and I did wonder why, but the arrival of 60009 explained that. My own train was delayed by about fifteen minutes but it was nice to see this steaming through Appleby.

Pitlochry: The platforms at Pitlochry may have been transformed recently, but the old lattice footbridge (the sort with the alarmingly low parapet) has been allowed to stay. It gives me this view of the 1224 to Inverness pulling in to while simultaneous southbound departure approaches behind me. I'm guessing that the 'SJP' signal designator is Stanley Junction to Pitlochry even though the (for now) manually signalled Dunkeld is in between.

North Connel: Leaving North Connel northbound having just crossed the Connel Ferry Viaduct on a train to Ballachulish in 1961.

Stubbins: East Lancashire Railway train from Bury Bolton Street to Rawtenstall passing the disused Stubbins station, looking back south towards Bury, on 5th April 2016. Despite a salient of modern housing quite close to this former station, it has rather surprisingly not been revived for heritage services. Just south of the station, the former main line to Accrington diverged and passed by the station but without any platforms. This closed on 5th December 1966, another victim of the infamous Beeching cuts.

Whitby West Cliff: The former station master's house at Whitby West Cliff, adjoining the north end of the station building on the up side and seen here in October 2008. The station closed in 1961, following which it was converted into a number of private residential units, with the location renamed Beechings Mews... for some reason. [See image 21088]

Callander (Dreadnought): NBL D6122 and a classmate on an Oban to Glasgow service at Callander in August 1961. The lead locomotive reportedly ended its days in Barry scrapyard, but did it? [See image 59244].
