Doing a workshop clearance of a late model engineer’s workshop last week I found a few photos, from his days as a loco fitter at Stafford Road works. Most are uncaptioned, but date from 1950 to the early 1960’s when it closed.
The works was the northernmost workshop of the Great Western Railway. Originally locos were built here but it became a heavy repair shop and major depot, with up to 75 locos stationed here. A detailed history is available at The History Website.
