An imposing building, have you noticed the two redundant window arches above the huge RSJ over the roller shutter?

It makes me wonder if there are/is other entrances for the wagins to enter by?

Took the words right out of my mouth, you can seethe roller shutter is a recent mod. The brickwork is brilliant. I wonder how many of today's brick layers could replicate that. Not many I fear. Six months and your qualified.

Great photo's

Thanks for posting

Toto.

Hi Doug,
The site is quite large overall but I could only get to see a small part through the fence. The part I photographed is is in use by a bus company and is separated off from the rest of the site. The rest (all well fenced off and apparently inaccessible) is in use by a company that refurbishes heritage and other railway locos and carriages etc. You can get a better idea of the size of the site if you take a look on google earth.
regards
David
