ST1775 : Derelict trackside building Cardiff

taken 10 years ago, near to Cardiff/Caerdydd, Great Britain

Derelict trackside building Cardiff.
Derelict trackside building Cardiff.
This derelict building is a former steam locomotive water and coaling point. The tank on the roof held water which was fed via nearby 'water cranes' to the tanks and tenders of locos. Coal wagons would have been shunted into the right-hand section and the coal unloaded onto a platform and then discharged into tenders and bunkers of locos, stood on the outside of the building on the side nearest the photographer, through the small openings.
My thanks to John Webb for this information.
