Caption: Solar powered level crossing. Train waiting at a former solar-powered level crossing at Idridgehay, Derbyshire, UK. The solar-powered system was installed by British Rail as an experiment in the 1980s and is presently disused, although the photovoltaic cells which generated electricity remain in place. The line is now part of the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.
