The railway in the UK was once a massive empire, with lines stretching the length of the country with many rural lines serving huge communities. There was probably a railway in your village or town at one point, some are still lucky to have one. Your house may even be built on an old railway line long forgotten. If you look deep enough you will find lost stations, crossings, tunnels and signalboxes, you may even find out your parents or grandparents worked on or built parts of the railway!


On this site you will find many former boxes, yards and stations in the Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Humberside regions, specifically on the line from the Sheffield area to Brigg (former Great Central line) and the surrounding colliery lines and also the iconic ECML (former LNER).
