I always love walking through the cutting, the Lees Lane end was filled in by the council. The only picture i can recall seeing is one taken from the bridge just before Neston station,(or where both used to be), quite a late on picture though showing a loco and coaches.

If there's a tunnel someone on Wiki will have a picture of it. :-)

If there is something of interest and we think hasn't been explored someone will come on with pictures and architects drawings plus letters from the builder and prices of installed material along with maps before and after and maps where it is today. :0)
