Good morning all. 
 

Does anybody have access to, or recommendations for sources of images of the GBRF shed at March, between the station and Whitemoor yard? Any time period between the GBRF takeover and today would be useful!

 

So far I’ve been limited to one shot from Wikipedia and a bit of capturing from Google maps. 
 

Any help very gratefully appreciated.

Don't think there is one, about 18 months since I was in there and certainly no shed then.

Hi,

 

I haven't been there in a couple of years, though I should have been at the beginning of this month.  Are you thinking about the former goods shed at the Ely end of the station?  If you are, I'll see if I can grab some screen shots from bits of video.

 

Regards,

 

Alex.

Yes there is a shed at March, used by GBRF and Electromotive to my understanding.

 

It's the one in the background of this shot -

Maybe this thread might help too - https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/121688-gbrfs-march-east-depot/

That second shot is really quite useful actually! As you’d probably have guessed, I’m toying with trying to replicate it and I thought it’d be good to try to do something with the crossing as a scenic break as opposed to the traditional over bridge (although I could still pose a bus on it!)

That’d be handy if it’s not too much trouble!

Hi again,

 

The videos are all in AVI format, and archived to USB sticks so are fairly easy to access; they were all taken from trains, some while stationary.  I should be able to look over the weekend.

 

Keep your fingers crossed.

 

Regards,

 

Alex.

The photos below show the former goods shed in the period between Balfour Beatty leaving and GBRf commencing use of the building.  If you are planning on modelling the depot I do have a few photos giving more detailed views of parts of the building along with the track layout if they would be of any help.

Modelrail did an article on modelling this, quite a few years back, but included some interior photos with a GB 66, 

would be well worth contacting them I think .

Hi again,

 

I finally found the avi files; it didn't help that the filenames were in their original form (i.e. a number made up of the recording date, etc).  Unfortunately the shots where you can see the shed are partial and really poor, and not of a quality that would be worth posting; sorry about that.  The images posted by SED Freightman are far better than mine.

 

Wishing you good luck with this.

 

Regards,

 

Alex.
