Went up to Stoke with skelderz and pitman0, with the intention of checking out Moneystone Quarry (http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=65791&highlight=moneystone), but were greeted by a (very helpful) demolition worker and the son of the site manager... Naturally we pretended we were looking for access to the sidings, and went on our way
about 45 minutes, a nettle sting (thanks to skelderz' advice to wear shorts), and about 5 barbed wire fences later, we found ourself at the back of the quarry, just a couple of minutes walk from the sidings, so here goes the pics

I'd always wanted to operate some railway points

we did walk into the quarry and have a quick look round afterwards, but got spooked when the aforementioned people came out of the building, along with the site manager, while we were hiding in one of the silos; turned out they were just lighting a massive bonfire... but it was getting dark, and after about 6 hours exploring, we decided to call it a day.

thanks for looking :)
