Leeming Bar Shed – A Reality

Thanks to a generous donation to the railway made recently, facilities at Leeming Bar can take a leap forward in the form of a two road shed to be built to the west of the existing goods shed.
This will enable us to undertake more maintenance under cover and also provide a secure covered stabling point for visiting locomotives whether they be steam or diesel.
This shed is not a pipe dream – the order has been placed for it and before the end of the year building work will be taking place.
The existing “polytunnel” bought with donated funds has proved itself by enabling work to take place safely under cover rather than out in the cold and wet. It is not going to be thrown away though – it will be dismantled carefully and stored ready for relocation elsewhere on the Leeming Bar site.
Keep looking on this website for photographs of the development as it takes place!
