    An excellent report Mikey, but then I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

    What an amazing collection of images that I truly appreciate would have taken some time to put capture and put together! Your passion really shines through Mikey!

    Its admirable that you have put so much thought into this project, researching and documenting the railway tracks and all their little buildings and artefacts scattered along the lines, beautiful iron and brick bridges, platforms and old tracks, boxes for pumps and phones, its just superb! Unless you have actually spent some time investigating and revisiting places and putting together a real extensive collection of an area its difficult to understand the energy that goes into something like this...its not a one off visit and simply ticking boxes!

    I'm bowing down to you right this min! Fascinating and time well spent Mikey!

    As always interesting comments from an ex British Railways Board director. But, alas Dirus most bridges, the ones I know of have been turned into cycle paths, particularly around Stirlingshire. But Mikey, I have fount a raft of pictures on a Flicker page with pictures of derelict railway stations around England. Most of the pictures have been taken in the seventies. Here's the link.

    I wish I had been a bloody Director! Sadly they only employed me as a Manager - fun times though back then. It's a rather strange feeling to see a building that one worked long hours in, occasionally appear on one of the Forums in a very battered state.

    Ah, my apologies. Since privatisation the private rail companies tend to go for a cheaper option for their offices sadly leaving historical buildings to dereliction or to rent.
