On and Off the Rails

Above are pictures of steam trains at Matlock Town  ( more info from ).
Below are pictures of abandoned railway materials near to Bennerley Viaduct. I see these often and always wonder if some group of railway enthusiasts couldn`t find a use for them. They`re doing no-one any good where they are.

There are numerous camnpaign groups, including the national campaign Action for Rail ( ) , the  Skipton-based SELRAP   ( ) and The Campaign for Better Tranport ( ) who campaign on issues around HS2, for lower train fares and, in partnership with a number of local groups,  for the re-opening of a number disused railway lines.
