Tinsley Yard and the Sheffield District Railway

Im sure there are many memories of the old Tinsley Yard. It's heyday was slightly before my time, although I do remember going to the last few open days growing up. 

The Sheffield District Railway is a fascinating story. Some of it still used. Some of it left waiting to maybe one day be reclaimed and some of it wiped out. 

 

Ironically, it's been in the news this week that the Meadowhall Rd bridge may be taken down.

I can't speak of Tinsley Yard itself, but when I was briefly lodging with a mate on Hatherley Road, we used to catch the bus into town for work by a heavily fenced off compound that was chock full of old steam locomotives waiting to be scrapped!

This would have been in the early 1980's. 

BTW, what a superb video montage you have created there.

First class job Mr Cooper . . . Used to work at Tinsley 70s and 80s . . . People used to come from all over the world to vhew th place . . . All part of the Great Privatisation Plan I'm afraid . . . The costs to make the place and keep it running were astronomical . . . Made a lot of people wealthy . . . The s steel Beeching plaque of Tinsley AdminBlock walk (wherever it went to) must itself be worth a tidy sum . . . Your dedication is appreciated . . .
