During a conversation last week I became aware that it was approaching the 4th Anniversary of the Works re-opening. It was 11th December 2006 when four Class 153s (302, 308, 355 and 374) arrived under their own power for storage at the re-opened site. The driver was Chris Smetham of GBRf.
How much the place has changed in those four years with established overhauls and maintenance now being undertaken by several companies on all kinds of stock from wagons to EMUs, Locos and MPVs. Whilst the yard is once again full of stored stock mainly comprising various wagon types and Mk2 coaches, there is plenty of other activity going on too.
Here's looking forward to the next year!
