Spink Hill
This looks like a closed M R station near a tunnel! Where is it? Direction?

Could be Spink Hill with Station Road bridge in the middle distance & Spink Hill Tunnel in the background. If it is we are heading SE from Killamarsh towards Langwith Junction.

The tour DID go this way, in which case, this is an LDEC station, not a Midland one! The fencing looks MR though, but the style of the nearest building is that of the LDEC.

I agree with John and Max that this could be Spink Hill Station. It certainly looks very similar to the photgraphs that I have of the station, although they are taken from the other end of the platforms.

This is definitely Spink Hill station with the train heading towards Langwith Jct.

Definitely Spink Hill station, looking Sth towards the tunnel. This still exists as a private residence and despite closure in c1966, the tunnel is still open if anyone fancies a (somewhat wet!) walk through it. - Take a lamp though as it is curved!!
