    [QUOTE=Sausage;357354 Still hard to take in that we had so much rolling stock and a huge network of railways in the UK. So much has gone now.[/QUOTE]



    Sadly; the BRB cut its own throat when Nationalisation took place on a Regional basis. Dieselisation, instead of full scale electrification immediately Nation wide, was the path chosen. Marine power units, mounted on poor under frames, do not make the most reliable locomotives in heavy service. Still; sorting out the cock ups for thirty odd years gave me an interesting job, good pension and a nice early retirement!

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
