- Weekly photo challenge. 15.2.13 – 3.3.13 – Trains & railways
Trains & railways this week.
Not exactly a new rule, but if you take a picture that others might find interesting, say where and what it is.
The rules;Posted 5 years ago
1. Take a photo of your bike with something that matches the theme in the picture.
2. Interpret the theme any way you like.
3. Pictures should be taken between the dates in the topic title.
4. If you post a picture you can either suggest a theme for next weeks challenge or vote for someone else’s suggestion. First suggestion to get two supporting votes becomes next weeks theme, probablyhoundlegsMemberOCBMember
Tramp Street sounds like my kinda street!
South Devon Line ‘twixt Totnes (Lttlehempston) and Buckfastleigh.
Staverton Level Crossing:
Random train (from the Mad Max universe too, by it’s markings): 😉
Enjoying the links people are posting, it adds to the arm-chair-tourist nature of this kinda thread.Posted 5 years agohallzMember
After a tough week at work I finished early today and went for a little pootle to take a few ‘railway’ pictures. The line is between Bolton and Blackburn and to find out a bit more then i have included the ride on my blog here:
The first place of call was the Armsgrove Viaduct which crosses Bradshaw Brook and the Wayoh Reservoir:
Next, a level crossing by the now long-gone Turton Station:
On to a bridge at Turton Tower. Its actually a folly and has no connection to a medieval castle whatsoever!
and finally the real reason for the ride..

Had a bit of a eureka moment today 😆
You know when something is right under your nose, you pass by it most days, especially when at work?
Well today was one of them 💡
I cycle along here at some point most days:
Caledonian cycle path
This is the cycle/pedestrian bridge over the Dumfries bypass replacing the old railway bridge.
Today on my quick blast between night shifts I had THE “moment”
36yrs ago I was offered a job here….
I waited ages for confirmation and a start date. When the letter came it was notification that the plant I was to start in would be closing and there were no new jobs!!
A year later however I got a job in another plant on the site, owned by ICI then and now Dupont.
I have been cycling past the remains of this line for all that time and only remembered today….doh 😳
This is the viaduct which is blocking the access to the plant/site due to safety concerns over the condition of the bridge and issues within the plant. If Sustrans could they would open this and the rest of the line all the way to Stranraer.
Gate blocking way to old ICI Nobel site:
My workplace is at the wee chimney in the background along with the puff of steam.
Mabie is in the background 😆
Water is good but could be a safer bet when we get stuck for ideas.Posted 5 years ago
Spring could work…
We’ve never had negative votes before. I didn’t know how to deal with them, so I ignored them. 😛Posted 5 years ago
