    Hello :D

    Well me & madeye decided to have another look at these tunnels this fine Easter Sunday morning. After having a good look a couple of times, and the place crawling with network rail workers with the gates wide open, we aborted our plans both times.

    Fast forward to today, Easter Sunday (the day of our lord!) and both gates were closed "for business", so me and my friend decided to make progress, as we all know, god loves a trier!

    History taken from Ojay's report, hope you don't mind but yours seamed to include everything along with a good could of images ;)

    Sorry for the poor images, really need to spend more time in dark areas trying to get the best . . . . .

    A bad photo of the live section. Not wanting to hang around here it was a very quick photo chance

    Spend more time in the live section, it will make you giggle like a schoolboy when one of the trains hurtles past your face..

    They are doing a lot of work in the tunnels, and today was the only time over the past 3 weeks the gates have been locked. I'm no doubt going back for a revisit as I really enjoyed it!

    Plenty of railway going on in Huddersfield at the minute, follow the tracks back towards town and you'll find some tunnels that are a bit more interesting..

    Good effort getting in at the mo, been a very busy place for almost a year now. I do like the look of the scaffold heading up one of the shafts in your pics, there's plenty of scaff on the topside too so wonder if there's a connection? ;)

    A nice Sunday stroll btw :D

    I really need to head back as I'm unsure if they are scaffolding over the canal section to sort that or if it's in between the railway and the canal.

    Cheers for the comments,

    Does anyone know what the work is that's going on?

    I'm not sure all that's entailed, but it's a major over hall on the 3 rail tunnels. Presume most is on the live line. All shafts have been scaffolded and cabins at both ends of the tunnel. Not seen this much activity in the 25 years I've lived this side of the hill, there must be a couple of £'s floating around to do a bit of maintenance work.

    The last time it was this busy was when they mad the canal tunnel navigable again in the late 80's/early 90's :) Should be worth a stroll to see what has been done.

    Nice! Never been in a live train tunnel before. Can imagine it's an awesome feeling when a train passes by!

    Cheers TLR

    I remember a rumour a few years ago that the third tunnel could become a cycle/foot path

    Love it when the train goes through, the pressure drops and you suddenly can't see the end because of the fog!
