I have lived in Ashton-under-Lyne for 16 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 one of the earliest tunnels of significant length in the world

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

It may not be without controversy.

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