Recently lost railways 1
The first of four parts (I spoil you. I know) of a video that looks at lines that were closed in the decade between the late 1970s and late 1980s.
This first part looks at the Woodhead route, the lost electrified line between Sheffield and Manchester.
I travelled on this line several times when it was used for Sunday diversions between the two cities while I was a student in York, and part of it was used by the Sheffield to Huddersfield service.
The video looks at a number of other lines, including the remarkable branch along the seafront to Weymouth Harbour.
