10.46 Newcastle to Liverpool Lime Street at Standedge Tunnel

This set of 3 pictures was taken on a recent visit to Marsden, Huddersfield. Whilst their I thought I would catch the train up from Slaithwaite to Marsden and walk back along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. As quite often happens with me I got distracted and headed for the Standedge Tunnel a short walk from Marsden Station. Whilst there I was trying to get a clear shot of the tunnel entrances, however I failed in this but whilst searching for a higher vantage point I took a moment to film and picture some of the trains on approach to the tunnels.

The train is the 10.46 Newcastle to Liverpool Lime Street service and is seen crossing Bridge 61 over the Huddersfield Narrow Canal on approach to the tunnels entrance. The train was passing at 12.47, the UID number was N03709, and headcode 5341.

The following video was taken later in the day and features a number of trains exiting and entering the tunnel.
Thanks for looking and please take a moment to share.
