    Default Red Star Trainyard, December 2018


    Intro
    After a visit to a slightly more unusual site (Photo below) we made our way over to this location which I knew little about apart from "it's a train in a shed" so it came a surprise to find more than just one or two locomotives.

    The Explore
    We found our selves out side these main sheds. lines of coaches and even one or two kettles (Steam engines) in the mix littered the outside of the site looking as if they had escaped being scrapped but awaited preservation. Once inside the stock inside was much more historic and photogenic.

    Warning. this contains a lot of train stuff and I'll probably give way too much info about them.
    anyway, enjoy.

    The Photos


    On the outside was what appeared to be a DMU train driving coach and was probably the most modern of the lot.

    The first was a small engine which was missing the tender.

    A number of coaches sat inside with the ones to the left being for parcels and the ones of the right being standard passenger coaches.

    Next up was the main photo opportunity. Know as The Red Star train it is an absolute beast, being an MAV Class 424 "Buffalo".

    Another kettle hanging about outside with the boiler exposed I don't know exactly what this one is.

    Anyway I'll leave this one here.

    Haha. I only got shots of the control room and a couple crappy phone shots elsewhere.

    Ahh you found the Strategic Reserve..

    That control room - amazed it's still there. The ceiling is to die for and always looks stunning. I'd love to see more of the actual controls in there or perhaps even inside the cabinets. For machinerys sake that is.

    Am I right in thinking those engine sheds and locos are trapped between brand new stuff? Is that why they still exist and have not been moved?
    It's make for some excellent night photos inside those sheds!

    Thanks for sharing :)
    Full of meaty goodness.

    Thanks. Definitely worth a visit. The red star is still on the loco I was just too lazy to make it stand out in editing.

    Thanks

    From what I am aware the locos are probably held for preservation. They probably couldn't be dragged out by a shunter due to the amount of rust.
