(Apologies if this has been posted before - I'd be surprised if it hasn't been but I did a search and found nothing.)

It seems several years ago the Trent & Peak Archaeological Society surveyed the Long Tunnel at the Duffield Bank Railway, in connection with new building work. There's a photo of the work in David Jones's Britain's 15-inch gauge Railways: Duffield Bank to Perrygrove.

I recently came across the report, available here: http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/greylit/details.cfm?id=36118

It indicates a surprising amount of the railway's formation is still left but unfortunately I don't think any public footpaths go anywhere near these days for one to observe it.
Regards, Ric

Was once Mapping the miniature railways of London, but now far too busy!
