1 pointCambridge Rd, That brings back some fond memories KateR, My Mother always dragged me along when she went to visit one of her old Aunties who live just off there in the 1950s. We caught the tram from the top of Meadowhead (can`t remember how we got to Heeley Green) we would then walk down Kent Road. A couple of Photographs from Picture Sheffield showing the top of Kent Road just as i remember it from the 50s and one as it looks now from Google Earth. Can anyone remember who the three wheel truck belonged to, or when the slaughter house was last used?
1 pointHere's a great video by a real train driver filmed by him, with explanations of the route taken this year. With unedited passage through tunnels and yes Totley Tunnel. The only time he stops the video is waiting time at stations. Things to watch for include the speed signs, especially into Sheffield. Plus how quickly the train accelerators. When he stops the train in a station, the driver has to know when to apply the brakes. There's nothing telling him now stop for the next station.
