Eastleigh Railway Works
Eastleigh Railway Works
After several reorganizations through the years caused by changes in types of railway rolling stock, the whole works formally closed in 2006. However some buildings are still in use by several railway contractors and the sidings are also used to store stock, in this case a rake of possibly condemned two axle goods wagons. The works buildings in the distance were part of the locomotive works dating from around 1909, and not the earlier carriage and wagon works. Remnants of former sidings litter the site. Here an old track crossed the road in the foreground and, from the Ordnance Survey map of 1938, ran down the right side of the buildings.
