Saltley depot outside the shed
Saltley depot outside the shed
Now closed as a Locomotive stabling and servicing depot this view shows a number of locomotives outside the fuel shed. Saltley was home to a large number of train crew who worked local passenger, long distance passenger as well as mail and freight trains from this Birmingham depot. It was a very busy location and one could find several locomotives waiting to be serviced at this depot. New Street Station was not far and many trains changed locos here or in the case of freight traffic at Washwood Heath near by. Home of the Saltley seagulls.
