Engine Shed Society photograph archive
The Alan Sommerfield collection
The following corrections have been received:
- In the archive in Z-extras, at the very end is an unidentified shed, wooden and white-painted (?). It was the first shed at Westbury, Wilts: 1848 – 1862.
- Under Middlesborough there is a picture of a roundhouse with on the print, a legend "south shed looking north." The building was actually one of the two roundhouses at Darlington North Road, later incorporated into the works. If you look in the left distance you can see a line of locos, of which one or two are in ex-works condition.
- AS-A073: is not Aboyne, it is Banchory Works (Deeside Rly). See also AS-B031
- AS-C029: is not Chelford engine shed (sad to say!), but the goods shed, which was at the north end of the station where the accident of 22 December 1894 occurred; the engine shed (closed 1880 and probably gone by then), was at the south end of the station.
- AS-C224: is Colwich not Colwick
- AS-D141: is not Dover Town but Dover Priory
- AS-G102: is Gurnos, not Gullane
- AS-M107: is Machen Works of the B&MR; there was never a locoshed there
- AS-S433: is not Swansea St. Thomas but Rutland Street (Swansea & Mumbles Rly)
