Hello again :) I've been meaning to get a report up for ages now, so here is my latest offering :lol:

History:
Clawson Tunnel (sometimes called Hose) was 834 yards long and was listed for block telegraph purposes which provide regulations for platelayers' trolleys passing through. It also caused delays to trains on account of the gradient, trains often "sticking", with sometimes the front part of the train in the tunnel.
The tunnel served the London and North Western Line from Northampton to Nottingham.


The portal of the tunnel:

A refuge, built into the tunnel for workers:

Looking out of the tunnel portal:

Anyway, that's all for now, hope to post more stuff soon :cool:
