Recently lost railways 3
There is some good news in connection with this section of the video.
The Nuneaton avoiding line was partly reopened when the town's station was remodelled. Trains from Leicester to Birmingham now use its bridge over the West Coast Main Line.
The Wensleydale branch is now run by volunteers as a heritage line: The Wensleydale Railway. Bedale signal box was one of three working British Rail signal boxes I was allowed into in my younger days.
Plans to reopen the Great Central came to nothing.
