Nice pictures, clearly the same location and it even has contrasting then and now trains.

We will have to get back to that Then & Now Gallery soon when we have sorted through all the then & nows we have accumulated in the last few months.

Off topic , but 4 carriages from Penzance to Edinburgh - Where do they fit all the passengers?! I'm sure that back in the day (1970's before HSTs) some of the summer trains would doublehead 14 carriages.

Its caled over-crowding, you pay full fair to stand up, the rail company wins both ways they get the money and don't have to invest in carriages. Privatisation. :(

I remember Heeley station very well, it's where we used to catch the train for our Sunday outing to Castleton. Has anyone a decent photo of it ? - there's nothing useful on Sheffeld Picture dot com.

There are very few if any photo's of Heeley Station, due to its elevated position. Dore & Totley, Beauchief and Millhouses all had road bridges passing over the line, thus making a vantage point. Heeley had no such vantage point.

There was a photo taken from the platform on ebay last year, however it went for a silly price.

Hey Stuart,

SteveHB appears to have the very picture that you described as selling for a silly price on eBay.

Was it you who paid the silly price for it Steve?

Now how would you know that Stuart ?

I was daft when we use to play together in the mid 60's,

And I haven't changed much since then.

Well I may be mistaken, it was just something about your photo that reminded it of my copy :)

The interesting bit about these pictures, with apologies to the train buffs, is that the iron railings next to the bridge that the trains are passing over are the only bit to survive and feature in all three pictures.

I often wonder whilst driving past, what is behind that bricked up entrance, Is it a time capsule or is it just a empty subway

Great photos, I didn't realise that the Hope

valley line was single track!!

Does anyone know why the middle picture does not have any signalling the one above has plenty?

The signals are still there but you have to enlarge the centre pic to see them. Look in the smoke from the loco's chimney for the Up Main signal.

Then you should be able to pick out the others.
