    Found this site after a cruise round on flashearth. Given its location Im surprised it has not been mentioned here before. For a clue, the sharp eyed among you might notice a Vulcan bomber in the background, this will give an idea of where the site is.

    Anyway, noticed this place whilst on flashearth while at work (when I shouldnt have been) and knocked off at 5:30 sharp so I could go and do this site. Finding it is easy.

    Anyway, what's there? - basically a hell of a loot of rail carriages and some engines, both diesel and electric, including a power station shunter. Not being a loco-spotter, Im not sure what class any of these ear, but there's a mix of the old SWT slam-door stock, like the ones I went to school on, the south london suburban trains (the ones with the sliding doors that look like overgrown tube trains, a number of the very early electric stock, including some of the 'Southern railway' electrics that is most likely pre-war. There's a 3car EMU formerly of Marchwood Military Railway and a very old (and seen better days) wooden tube carriage and a Class 50 diesel loco (it says so on the side)

    Not sure what the history of the site is, it's certainly not an old rail yard. My guess is that its either a failed museum or somewhere that some enthusiasts put stock they have bought from scrap and look after until they can be put into a museum.

    Interiro access to the rolling stock is limited but the site makes a very pleasant walk round after work.

    Anyway, on to the photos
