  1. We are just beginning to collect information and photographs for a forthcoming book about the history of Tinsley marshalling Yard and Diesel depot. We particularly require photographs taken of the construction of the yard, and in its early operational days. If anyone can help with this project, no matter how small, please do get in touch Thanks
  2. Further to this I would just like to announce that a follow on volume has been published. This continues on from Langwith Junction to Lincoln and takes in the Mansfield Railway This can be found at http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/4691288-the-lancashire-derbyshire-east-coast-railway Not really anything to do with Sheffield, but it does complete the story.

  4. February 2013 sees the 40th anniversary of the commissioning of Sheffield PSB and to celebrate this, we are in the process of collating photographs to make a book in which we intend to show photos of all the signalboxes closed as a result of Sheffield PSB taking over their operations. We have a large amount of photos but there are some gaps.We need photos of the following signalboxes:- Aldwarke Main Colliery (closed in 1965 when Aldwarke Junction box opened) Roundwood (again closed 1965 when Aldwarke Jn opened, but retained as a Ground Frame until the 1980's) Brightside Junction (1965 box interior photo) Sheffield North Junction interior photo Sheffield PSB interior photo's taken in the 1970's or 1980's (we have current photos) Any help with these would be much appreciated
