Called in here again on my way home from work today. Got speaking to the old guy on site which paid dividends as he showed me some old drawings and photos, definately speak to him if you go as he dislikes ignorant folk who just turn up and expect to roam around.
Anyhow on with the pics

I must admit, I prefer steam locomotives, but these big old diesels are awesome!

The size of the diesel engines is massive, these were lying round the yard at Buckley Wells on the East Lancs Railway when I went round a few years back.
