    Default Rusting Hulks..


    I made a visit to this place over the Christmas period on the way to Scotland. I came across it on some very early pics. I did wonder if they were all still there, but speaking to a local friend he confirmed they were still all there. I was quite excited to see these. There is lots of old engines laying around. and old carriages. they all awaiting some sort of restoration, but as they have sat there in the same place for years I do not think that will be happening to soon. One of the highlights was a really old turntable.









    Close up of the old turntable.

































































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    There's a lot of wagons and coaches there worth renovating. A pity you didn't look at the solebars which would tell you who built it and the build date.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
