An intriguing time capsule! I wonder what the smell is like in those disused tunnels? Lucky the photographer and his guide didn't drown in any of the tunnels flooded by the sweat of commuters from the upper levels...


I typed the Blue Pullman route into a ticket website and it seems the same journey on a Monday morning next week via Cheadle Hulme takes 20 minutes less (or rather the replacement bus service does!!)...is that an improvement? I wonder how much more expensive in real terms the same ticket is today? Should check the times and price for the steam era also...

Sorry, I dont have a very good sense of smell.

Note the Tunnel posters date from 1967.

Hmm...

It makes you wonder what else has survived in similar circumstances?
