Factory unit on the former Great Central main line
Factory unit on the former Great Central main line
The main line from Nottingham Victoria to Sheffield and Manchester ran straight ahead - the right wall of the modern factory is parallel to the former tracks. Bagthorpe East curve, carrying Derby Friargate trains to Basford North and on to Kimberley and Ilkeston, passed to the left of this building, where the bushes are. Behind the camera the embankment - 40ft high where it crossed the ring road - has been levelled and the houses of Tunstall Drive built. For more about the railway network in these parts, see SK5543 : Fenton Road : railway remains, SK5543 : Arnold Road bus stop: where there was once a railway bridge, SK5543 : Arnold Road: where Derby trains once crossed and others.
