Railway Depot, Buxton
These Class 37s (right to left 37676 and 37681) were part of a fleet dedicated to hauling trainloads of stone from the nearby quarry. They were the only Class 37 locomotives to receive the Railfreight grey, with the addition of a red solebar. In the foreground are the diesel refuelling pumps.
The depot has now closed and a new one has opened at Tunstead Quarry, Great Rocks.
Buxton depot was a stop-over, on my way to Crewe.
