Molly Street

This is inside the GW steam shed at Birkenhead. The depot closed in 1985 in its final years it was used for storage of withdrawn class 503 electric Mersey Rail units. This one was 29278. What makes this shot for me was the discovery of this beautiful fuel wagon and mineral wagon. The fuel wagon clearly looks as if it was pre war and the steam vents in the roof lend to the overall atmosphere.
All is gone now. The site was demolished in 1987.
