A class 100 Gloucester twin car d.m.u. awaits departure from the old North Berwick station to Edinburgh Waverley in July 1969. Since January of the previous year the North Berwick branch had been a long siding from Drem. The branch was then under threat of closure. It didn't and is now electrified with a frequent service to Edinburgh. All that you see here is gone and the long siding shortened by a couple of hundred yards. Gordon Thomson.

In August 1969 I read that the Great Central & Midland Railway branch line from New Mills to Hayfield in Derbyshire was going to be closed shortly so took time off from geological mapping near Hartington on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border & travelled up by train from Buxton. This diesel multiple unit took me from New Mills and here it stands in Hayfield station after arrival. Hayfield station building was intact & quite a few passengers still used the service. So why close it? Allegedly to save maintenance of the tunnel just outside New Mills station. However, after closure the tunnel remained open because it was used to stable the dmu before returning to Manchester. So again why close it? Pete LG99.
