Who remembers running along the two boards inside the bridge and jumping between the gaps. Scary or what, or did you not live dangerously like me and Tom Eastlake?

Omg, I used to do that too. We used to climb along the pipe on the stakeford side and run along the middle over to the Ashington side.

But did you ever used to stick your head out of the trapdoor to watch the trains coming at you, happy days and as for living dangerously, still do lol
