There ARE photos of the underground platforms below the Arndale Centre.

There is a website called Urban Exploration - http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/

I will try find the photo from the guys who managed to get down there, but they explore all sorts of abandoned, unused, or never used tunnels, installations etc.

Slow shutter speed; Someone moving about holding a torch?

Yeah, there's no light down there, it's uninhabited, so you have to "paint" the room with a torch using a very slow shutter speed.

Still, quite weird 142 059 survives in some form, in a totally random location too! How did they even get it down there, the mind boggles.

The answer to the question about the 142 cab lies in one of the comments of this photo..........It was going to form part of a driving simulator

Hmm, interesting.

You'd think you would save the bits that would actually be useful in a simulator though, ie, the actual cab, rather than the outer shell which you don't even need in a simulator.

Quite cool. I've seen something similar from other countries in Western Europe.
