Train Sculpture, Woodthorpe Park
A reminder of the days when the Nottingham Suburban Railway ran through the park via the Ashwell Tunnel. The railway was opened in 1889 and was built to serve the brickworks of Mapperley and Thorneywood but passenger trains were also ran. By 1901 passenger services were past their heyday with competition from the start of electric tram service into Nottingham and ceasing completely thirty years later. The brickworks traffic continued until 1951 when the line was finally closed.
