Midnight train to Brownhills?
Very best for the New Year, Pedro
'Fraid not, Lichfield City for a bus, as it happened. Nice afternoon walking near Matlock Bath, though - very pleasant off-season.
Once, trains would have left here for Brownhills but sadly, Beeching saw to that.
Happy new year to you and yours, love your gallery, as ever. As a long-time user of Panoramio (just like you) I'm loving the fact that the wrinkles are now ironed out, updates to GE are now every few days and the new features are lovely.
All the best, and happy new year to you, too…
I am interested in your title as it is indeed a place of sadness for those who grieved the loss of the twenty victims of the train crash which occurred on the platform track in the foreground on 1st Januanary 1946 (around 6.55 p.m.). It was the third worst crash on the LMS and was caused by ballast interfering with the points lock in advance of the platform. A fish train ran into the rear of a stationary passenger train. I wonder if there is a memorial plaque on the platform ? Thanks for sharing this atmospheric and interesting picture. Like. Regards. Jim
