    Visited 12/01/2008 but been waiting for a free evening to finally get my arse into gear & post it!! Prospect Tunnel is approx 500 yards from the Leeds end of Crimple Viaduct, open at both ends, through to just before the Harrogate by-pass. If anyone has travelled on the Leeds to Harrogate line they'll know the squeeling the train makes as it rounds the corner onto/off the viaduct? The original line was to Church Fenton and was straight on once over the viaduct instead of the sharp corner! Nice easy ish tunnel, very wet at the by-pass end, 3 capped airshafts, you sure need wellies for this! Good recomend for any tunnel newbies. Near each air shaft there were plates on the tunnel wall with 'P1' for the first shaft etc-is this common? Went through tunnel then back over the top for shaft tops. Watch out for the landowners! Got a fright with the tent though! :eek:
