At BH a two-road 4/5 bogie shed at Hollybush Road CS might be possible


Preserving access to the boiler shop would be a concern. If the setup is like the Kidderminster CS, there would also the issue of being unable to put steam locos inside the shed, limiting the length of a shed so that locomotive runrounds can be accommodated.

We'd probably find out that it was already filled with the UK's strategic reserve of steam locomotives if we tried that!

Just a thought - can we get the wagon shed built first?




If we're all having sheds, donations are welcome for a roof over our Fruit D and Fruit C at Hampton Loade.....!

The road level was raised when BR shut the line so that won't be possible.
