The Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway

Post by rogerfarnworth »

I have lived in Ashton-under-Lyne for 15 years and have walked in Longdendale and travelled on trains on parts of the route of the old Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway.

This is the first of a few posts about that railway company which was responsible for the construction of the Woodhead Tunnel.

This is great stuff!
Many times the wrong train took me to the right place.

This is a very short reflection on how the struggles of this smaller company ultimately left the Great Central Railway with its own financial struggles!

It may not be without controversy.
