LMS Route: Birmingham New Street to Nuneaton
Arley Tunnel: mraf1076
Diesel locomotive D215 'Aquitinia' is seen leaving the
western end of Arley Tunnel on a diverted express service on Sunday 3rd July
1966. The train is the diverted 09:45am Euston to Birmingham express, the
diversion being because of electrification work on the Rugby to Birmingham
section of its normal route. The ridge seen half-way up the cutting is where
the original tunnel has been opened up by the removal of the soil on top.
