#3228 Gowhole Sidings.2nd, May 1981.

Post by Digger »

Many of you may have seen the pictures in the album of Gowhole sidings when it was in operation.The sidings were closed in 1969 and left to nature after the track was lifted.
While I was there to photograph a "Steam Special" I also took pictures of the site of the sidings to illustrate how big was, which may be of interest.

This photo is to the right of the previous one and shows the remains of what appears to be a railway embankment.<br />In picture 2 the embankment seems to carry on under a footbridge, but to where?<br />Does anyone know anything about this rail line,if it was?

I found this map site recently which lets you view the historical maps alongside the present day.

It might be useful.
