Ride over STAINMORE SUMMIT DMU front view – Dec. 1961
To finish off we take a look at another old archive film from the 1960’s with Youtuber Alan Snowdon, with a look at the now closed & long gone Stainmore route. We join a DMU with a front view ride of the line in December 1961, a few weeks before closure. This line was one of Englands highest mainline railway routes & if you’re travelling on the A66 today you can still see the Stainmore Sumit railway sign still in place! Did you get a chance to ride this line? Or have photos, models of this line? We’d love to see them & will feature them in the newsletter if you like to send them in.
