Trains over the Trent

Canals and railways often go together. It's hardly surprising, as they both like flattish ground, with as few obstacles as possible. In the Long Eaton area of the River Trent and the Erewash Canal there are many intersections of the two modes of transport.

These are Sawley Locks, with a freight train crossing behind.

This is the same line, having curved to the north and east, viewed from the Erewash on the outskirts of Long Eaton.

And here is the same train, crossing the canal on its way to the bridge in the top photo.

All photos from our April 2013 cruise.
