Love it!! Except that my team will be playing Stevenage next season!Stevenage as well, plus as we are that low down the pyramid Arlesey , and St Neots too.
Football specials used to run to Wadsley Bridge station on the stub of the Woodhead line- platforms were retained there long after closure to regular passenger traffic.(Don't think it's been mentioned up thread). It is no longer true, but the instant I saw this thread title I thought of Hillsborough and the view you got of the ground after leaving Sheffield Victoria clunking along behind a "Tommy" in six Mk1s (in various liveries from maroon and blue-grey to SR green!)
The question I ask myself is why this is so imprinted in my mind's eye? I only saw the view maybe 5-6 times. I don't support Sheffield Wednesday, and I've never been to a match there - yet this image is seared into my memory.
Slightly more on topic - can you see Sheffield United's ground from somewhere around the Midland station? It's not far away as I remember? But maybe the tracks themselves are in cuttings? Long time since I was there.
No you cant. You can see one of former grounds at the Arena. It is now the home of Darlington Mowden Park RFU. Our current ground is at Blackwell Meadows whihc i dont think can be seen from the train.Darlington.
You will struggle to see Feethams anymore. Sadly long gone and turned into housing.Darlington at Feethams and the George Reynolds Arena
You can't see both Dundee and Dundee United's grounds as Dundee station is below ground, and the stadiums are located at the opposite end of the city. Edinburgh City and Hibernian can both be seen five minutes after departing Edinburgh Waverley eastward, heading along the ECML.I don't know the, Dundee, Edinburgh (City & Hibs) grounds well enough to comment.
And Heart of Midlothian going the other wayYou can't see both Dundee and Dundee United's grounds as Dundee station is below ground, and the stadiums are located at the opposite end of the city.
