The Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway
« on: June 30, 2019, 10:27:07 PM »
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 couple of posts about that railway company, particularly about the Woodhead Tunnel.

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

It may not be without controversy.

To keep the post itself brief, the detail is carried in Appendices.
