STORAGE DAYS

COMPILED AND EDITED BY GEOFF POOLE

 

AFTER 6G WAS DEMOLISHED THE CARRIAGE SHED WAS RE-CODED LJ AND BECAME
A HOME FOR SERVICING THE DIESEL LOCOMOTIVES AND DIESEL MULTIPLE UNITS
THAT HAD REPLACED STEAM TRACTION ON THE NORTH WALES COAST MAIN LINE

THE "NEW" SHED ALSO BECAME A STORAGE CUPBOARD FOR ALL SORTS OF
RAILWAY VEHICLES.

THE PHOTO'S BELOW  SHOW A SELECTION OF STORED ROLLING STOCK THAT WAS
BUILT UP IN THE SHED TOWARDS THE END.

This rolling stock stored at the shed in 1999 has been involved in serious fire damage. It is not known if the damage was caused at the shed or elsewhere.  

 

 


The mess inside the shed in August 1999 is an obvious message that it is surplus to requirements and it wont be long before it disappears to make way for the cinema.

 

 


More fire damage is evident here. The dangerous condition of the large glass roof is apparent from this view.

 

 

 


The above vehicle is a ballast cleaner, not a track crane as I originally stated.  The arm was used
to dispose of spent ballast either into an adjacent wagon or simply dumped down an embankment.

Thanks to Paul Harley for the above correction ( see NEWS PAGE )
