Express over Uppermill Viaduct

Express over Uppermill Viaduct
A day or so back we got up to a view point that we have never got to before. I knew it had to be around where we were, for I had seen many great railway photo taken from up here. Beneath this viaduct runs the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and I have often peered upwards wondering how to get to this highpoint.

After waiting quite some time for a train in an even better position than this, I was just giving up after walking back up the hill through wet vegetation when my wife shouted "here comes a train". Indeed it was the Express from Newcastle to Liverpool Lime St after running through the Standedge Railway tunnel just a mile or so further up. This is a Class 802 bi-mode Diesel-Electric - No. 802209 on the 9M20 0947 service.

Your patience payed off Herb! What a great viewpoint and you captured two great pictures. I also like the viaduct shot. Just something about them that looks so special.
Take care and have a good weekend. Cheers, Rosa.

I almost missed it Rosa nd this was not the best place but it did me well all the same. The other two relevant photos I have taken a little time back - not far from here.

You take care too. Herb

Hi Gordon, I didn't mean to come by here, it just so happened that I could see on this stretch of lane, the track and viaduct below me so found this lost viewpoint at last. Glad you liked it.

Cheers, Herb

Thanks David. Yes it is a great corner for exploring. We have ventured along the canal through Uppermill often in the days of Covid. Always busy here though with those damn walkers and tourist :) Yes, we had a real white blanket this morning from the NE. At least 2" of snow on the windscreen and it is still all white outside now.

Keep safe. Herb

Yes, there must be a way of seeing when the next steam hauled train is running through here. Not too many at the moment I think. Glad you like it.

Yes, our ancestors were very good at creating these viaducts and the Italians for the Japanese company Hitachi seem very good at making these modern trains. :) Thanks for enjoying them.
