    Lovely set of images Mikey. Trudged up and down here a good few times in the very early '60's. As for re-opening - it was not just loss of revenue that caused eventual closure, maintenance issues and water seepage added to the financial burden and subsequent choice of closure. Obviously repair is much cheaper than boring afresh, but like many of these 'get it re-opened schemes', have Peak Rail actually done a proper survey and costing and more importantly, are the funds there? Big difference between 'We think it would be nice to re-open such and such' and 'We have the required funds and planning consents and work starts next ????'.

    Well shot mate :) Had a look at this when I was very green back in late 2013. Will defo have to have another look at this when I'm over that way next. Better gear and hopefully more idea now :) Like you said it's very photogenic.
