Railways on Street View

Standard gauge and narrow gauge

Each Street View location will open in a new browser window, or tab &8211; close when you've finished looking at each link. The Street View picture can be altered to look roundas usual. Places are only listed as links, as to include the Google Maps/Street View content in the page would make the page take a (very) long time to load. Note: the location that appears in the search box on the Google page will not necessarily be that shown on the map and Street View. The location given on this page is where it is – sometimes the map page was loaded by starting from the location in the box, then moving the map to the place shown, which doesn't alter the place in the Search box.

Narrow Gauge:

A narrow gauge train beside the road at Chilmark in Wiltshire. This is the remaining part of the large armaments depôt line. The line carries stone from a quarry, used to repair Salisbury Cathedral. The MOD line did not run along the road, but was behind high fences.
Train as above, from the rear.
The line curving away from the road towards the quarry.
About here, when the armaments depôt was still in use (1999), an otherwise rather ordinary looking policeman suggested that climbing the fence was not wise. He then parted his tunic to reveal a pistol in a holster on his belt. There was an extensive system here from exchange sidings on a branch from the Salisbury-Yeovil line, leading to underground storage bunkers.
There was another narrow gauge system nearby, at Dinton on the opposite side of the main line.
Happier days: photos taken in 1999 of the double track "mainline" and tracks leading to the standard gauge interchange shed. The building on the right in the second picture is the shed for the SG loco. Beside it on the right is a police van, and on the left, one of the SR-built WD brake vans that had two brake cylinders on the end platform.

– Cayeux line to the left, harbour line on the right, interlaced with standard gauge track. Ville station is the white building. Pre-preservation, passenger trains did not use the line onto the quay, so the platform to the right of the station building is recent.
