    Hope you aren’t sick of Canfranc yet as here comes report three. In some ways this bit is the most photogenic (if you like rusting railway porn). If you continue down the tracks past all the goods sheds and keep going, on your left you will come to the engine sheds. These are a bit special as the turntable is still in situ. You could be forgiven for missing them but I’d spotted them on Google Earth. Anyhow – enough waffle. Here’s the pix.

    Ooohhh…now this looks interesting:

    VERY interesting!

    Did they really turn the turntable by hand?!

    Let’s have a nose inside:

    There’s even some half-decent graff:

    Doesn’t look like the sheds have been used for a while:

    Nature reclaims the water pump:

    Missed that bit of graff first time around:

    OK – back we head:

    Another old goods shed:

    Love the old info signs:

    And the old crane:

    Here’s its big brother:

    And the daddy, an overhead crane:

    Time for some rolling-stock porn:

    Last train to nowhere:

    And back to the main station again:

    These rooms are a bit trashed:

    These buildings just north of the main station are slightly better condition:

    But only just:

    Nice to see the not-so-touristy parts of Canfranc ! Not that many people go there anyway.

    Deffo a bit under the radar at the moment. Be interesting to see how things change if and when they get the station fully restored.
