Carlisle Durranhill Shed

Northern 156470 with an early afternoon service from Leeds approaching Carlisle on 26 February 2007. The train is passing through Durranhill, once the centre of Midland Railway operations in the Border City. To the left of the train stood Durranhill locomotive shed, (closed in 1959) with the MR's Durranhill sidings immediately beyond. The modern logistics depot in the left background is built at the western end of the former yard and is obscuring the site of the Midland's Petteril Bridge goods depot, which stood just beyond on the west side of the River Petteril. These ex-Midland Railway locations now form part of the large Durranhill Industrial Estate.
