The Old Railway Highlands Road - a Memory of Fareham.

does anyone remember the disused railway which used to run under Highlands Road next to Hill Park Working Mens' Club?
I used to go to the clinic up near Kiln Road to get my pre-school injections and can remember walking over a metal footbridge next to the road bridge which carried Highlands Road. This footbridge used to vibrate like mad when a train went underneath.
Does anyone have any pics of this railway - when it was working, after it shut, when they were dismantling it - anything? Please get in touch if you do.
