    Default EWS Thornaby Traction Maintenance Depot, Stockton-On-Tees – August 2010



    I was first told about this place when it had many more locos on site, These are the photographs after the big scrappage of them all.

    After passing various warning signs and keeping an eye on the National Rail van parked in the yard myself & my girlfriend had a free roam of the place for the next 30/40 minutes.

    Built in 1957 Thornaby TMD was used for the upkeep and maintenance of diesel locos along with small office blocks and sadly a roundhouse which was demolished a number of years ago. It was closed in 2008 because of the decline and need for TMD’s and the reliability of newer trains.

























    The Stockton International Riverside Festival was on over the weekend too...







    Cheers, Gone...
