People will suggest the LED Lenser, and it's a great torch but it's expensive as far as torches go when all you want to do is see 10m in front of you.
For £7-£12 this'll light the whole tunnel up, they're very strong, give a decent amount of light and they have a rechargeable battery. As simple, effective and cheap as you can get. I've got 2 of them!

AAA version

Rechargeable version

Only down side, if you're light painting with a DSLR the colour comes out a bit blue, however if you light paint with film SLR, it looks sick.
Hope that helps.

Edit: Just seen your budget, if you want to spend £30 on a torch then a Lenser is the best way to go.

Interesting introduction post :thumb

Why do you want a Torch that will light up 10M ?

I think the shortest so called railway Tunnel is @32 yards (we call them bridges in Yorkshire :) but the majority are way over 160YDs so something that"ll actually illuminate would be useful.

A 10M range is only good enough for you not to trip over something or fall into a catchpit ;)

A Lenser P7.2 is probably £ for £ one of the better purchases for an all round Torch. Maplins have a special offer on it at the minute for £40 with a free P3 (or was ? ) which is £10 off the price for the P7.2 alone :confused:

I run mine on Lidl re-chargables, less Lumens but cheaper than Duracells

Seen this thread. I will recommend this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00NPU8TJQ This is a nice, solid-feeling metal LED torch that comes with two Li-ion batteries and its own plastic case. And it is very good of price.
Generic standard chinese torch, £5 from Ebay.

I's always recommend the Lenser P7.2 though even though it's many times the price.

The LED Lenser torches are rock solid when it comes to reliability and the batteries last a fair while.

The £20 - £30 Chinese cree torches will blast out more than enough light for a train tunnel but they will burn through batteries and the 18650 batteries can be dodgy.

Personally I carry a couple of Lensers and a couple of high powered Chinese jobbies
