Manchester to Sheffield Cab ride with a real train driver


Recommended Posts

History dude

Here'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.

The train driver has since retired so is not making videos. He's also had to delete some of the video's as fellow train drivers were using them as route learners. Since the video's were filmed, route rules have changed, therefore creating unsafe practices and his former bosses were not keen on the videos still been available!
