SK5543 : Arnold Road: where Derby trains once crossed

near to Bulwell, Nottingham, Great Britain

Arnold Road: where Derby trains once crossed
Arnold Road: where Derby trains once crossed
This grassy knoll, in a children's play area, is on the reclaimed and landscaped site of Bagthorpe West Curve, which led Great Northern Derby-bound trains from Bagthorpe Junction to Basford North, then west through Kimberley and Ilkeston. Carriage sidings, where spare coaches were stabled, were to the right and behind the camera and the Great Central main line from Nottingham Victoria to Sheffield and Manchester a little further to the right. The GNR's lattice bridge across Arnold Road (which is behind the line of bushes) was where the trees in the centre are, and beyond it the line curved to the left behind where the industrial unit now stands to Basford East Junction, subject of Ben Brooksbanks's SK5543 : A V2 2-6-2 approaching Basford North station from Nottingham Victoria.
