Disused Running Tunnel


The disused running tunnel still has sleepers in place.

Although the photos don't show it, the tunnel floor is covered in red glitter following the filming of the pop video 'Firestarter'

Some fittings such as the brackets for the train telephone wires are still present.

The train telephone is carried in the cab and was connected to the two wires in the tunnel, so that train crew could contact the signalbox. If the two wires were touched together then the power to the rails is automatically cut.
