    Arrow Dingle tunnels (overhead railway terminus)

    another fantastic place to explore is the dingle tunnels currently used as roscoe garage it retains most of its original features and amells like central station

    the main platform area is getting used for the garage but the 3/4 of a mile long tunnel that extends out onto the dock road is just used for storage really and the very nice man who runs the place let me go up and have a look

    this is what you see from the dock road the start of the overhead railway




    the entrance to the garage now if anyones been down this garage driving a car down here is quite scary to say the least




    the start of the long dark wet tunnel

    the last section just before the end


    the grill at the end


    and looking down right from the very end

    Great shots. There are some good ones of the outside of Dingle Station from 1955 on this website:
