Inside the engine shed


After escaping the cannibalism of the Holyhead Breakwater Railway, 01 001 finds a safe haven at Melbridge Parva shed. All appears safe - while the building has long since lost its doors, at least there is an inspection pit and some tools so the little engine feels that they must care for locomotives here.

The loco is a Judith Edge kits 01 built here. The safe shed was Airfix although it's been heavily modified. Those missing doors have gone in to the bin because they are a terrible fit and stop a long way from the ground. The photo is one of a set taken for Modelling British Railways Diesel Locomotives but I decided that while pretty, it doesn't fit the bookazine, so you get to see it here instead.
