The railway to Calverton Colliery
The railway to Calverton Colliery
Although this line served only Calverton Colliery, it was built as double track and only singled in relatively recent times. Calverton was one of the later Nottinghamshire collieries to close and was a relatively modern pit. It was modernised to operate with Merry-go-round trains for the Trent Valley power stations and therefore was built to heavy standards, including as can be seen here, lengths of continuously welded rail.
