Extant rails

Beyond the collapse the rails look to be clear leadingoff into the distance. Probably the oldest disused railway I've come across. Of course, I doubt the rails are original, but they will date back to at least the 1860s. If they are original, then the early 1700s. Technically a tramway, not a railway!

 

This photo is part of the 1688 tunnel set.
