And this scene is really only a memory, because all of the railway has disappeared, except for the viaducts which still stand – one out of use entirely, the other used by walkers. This is the Midland Railway station at Millers Dale, between Derby and Manchester. One of the most scenic routes in Britain, the line was closed in the 1960s. The two trains are in the beautiful Midland Red livery.
