Goods yard

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 5th May 2011 by Jenny Porter

This is one of the photographs donated to Metal by Dennis Flood, a railway enthusiast (not to be confused with the photographer of the same name). This one is of a goods yard. Long rows of trucks can be seen, as can a locomotive. There is also a building under construction, possibly a shed to house the trucks, and a signal tower: in the background, on the main line, there is what seems to be a signalbox

This photograph was taken by the late Jim Peden.
It shows Tuebrook Sidings to the right of the picture with a former LMSR Class 5 steam locomotive with the safety valves `lifting`. Between the Class 5 locomotive and the Type 4 diesel locomotive,which can be clearly seen in Tuebrook Sidings,is a former LMSR `Crab`steam locomotive. The diesel locomotive was No. D9 `Snowdon` and it is attached to a train of empty coaching stock (ECS) and was being used for driver training purposes. To the left and behind the signal gantry can be seen Edge Hill Carriage & Wagon repair shops. The signal box seen in the left top corner is Edge Hill No.3. This signal box closed when Edge Hill Power Signal Box opened in 1961. The new building under construction near the signal gantry is being built to house signalling equipment.
