Grimesthorpe junction engine shed


Recommended Posts

Hi All. I'm wondering if anyone might be able to help. My Uncle worked at Grimesthorpe junction in the 1950's and he remembers a photo, taken from an elevated position of the engine shed. Has anyone any links to any such pictures. Picture Sheffield doesn't show it and I'm drawing a blank searching the net. I do believe the photo was in a book about the Midland railway, but I don't know the title. Big ask I know.
Thanks in advance

Could be wrong but I always thought the old Midland shed was known as Brightside.

No Grimesthorpe was a depot. There's some pictures of it in the Rail Centres Sheffield No11 book. Uploaded here:

Thanks, they're a bit before his time but I'm sure he'll enjoy looking at them.
