    I created the Derby Manchester Sheffield Route just for reasons like memory lane.
    Here in pictures I relive a journey from New Street to Coleshill that I took in 1950's.

    Awesome. Must have been good fun being able to see those steam locomotives back then!

    This is one of the things I love about this game too - I am always recreating the things I remember from my earlier days. :)

    For me, that's the late 80s/early 90s.
