Thread Name: Songs About the Disappearing of the Trains
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Disappearing of the Trains
Mentioning Dave Goulder and Requiem for Steam - the track Shutdown of the Pinxton Line relates vividly the 'celebrations' and events that accompanied the last train or last day of so many lines in the UK.

Pinxton is in Nottinghamshire. Good to see a few of the old lines being recommended for re-opening but how shortsighted it has been to allow redevelopment on the old trackbeds
