Sheffield Midland Train Station

History dude

A new video by the Train driver chap shows that after the recent derailment this year at the north end of platform one, although Network Rail restored the section to the platform, they removed the link to the siding that's in the section between the first tunnel and the overbridge. Although the siding line was present the line is cut off.  I remember looking over the bridge regularly at the siding and it used to have a 16 ton mineral wagon in it, full of what looked like waste that had been cleared from the line. By the look of things it looks like they still need a wagon there for that! 

Three screen shots below

Hello,

I've recently joined the site. My name is Josh and I'm currently editing a program which features Sheffield Midland as one of its main stories. The series is called Architecture the Railways Built and series 1 can be viewed online:

Unlike many such projects, the series did get made, and I have enjoyed watching several episodes of it, though I haven't yet seen the one which includes Sheffield Midland.

 

As an aside, if you are editing a programme, perhaps the ability to spell "programme" would be an advantage.

I did see the programme on Midland. I recall that them showing a ductile on the platform that could be opened up leading down to the River Sheaf flowing under the station. It also showed several rooms that catered for first class passengers and another that catered for the third class passengers.
