30 minute account of the links between railways and mining/quarrying from earliest horse-drawn roots up to 20th century. Taken from

British Transport Films Volume Four: Reshaping British Railways 2-DVD set. Can be seen after 58 minutes of this youtube centipede.

Reasonably interesting for a subject which is not exactly thrill-a-minute. Some good sequences from the Derbyshire Dales industrial networks (Cromford, Ambergate) which I know slightly now as a World Heritage Site series of trails and railway walks.

Nothing worth a page, but some quarry excavators for those who like them (locations not specified)

- pair in same quarry
