(1) Greg Beecroft comments: A DMU shuttle service (involving several trains) ran between Sheffield and Tinsley Yard. I think they ran via Brightside Junction, but the main feature of interest was in the yard where trains came in on the south side, via Shepcote Lane Jn to the South West Arrival Line, where passengers boarded and lighted. Departure was via the Secondary Yard East Departure Line to Tinsley Yard Reception Sidings where trains reversed to return via the usual route along the north side of the yard.
2) Kevin Driscoll's route description: Sheffield station to yard, (Southernmost access line). Then onward via diveunder beneath hump just North of lower diesel shed, to main through line, reverse, direct back to Sheffield.
