    Heaton TMD was originally built by the North Eastern Railway to provide storage for locomotives operating out of the Newcastle area. In 1954 the shed was taken over by BR as part of rail nationalisation in the UK, the shed was coded 52B North Eastern Region and had 95 locomotives allocated to it. The carriage sidings which are featured in this report were closed in the late 80's, probably due to a decline in loco hauled services, the Deltic's having been replaced by HST and loco hauled services now been operated mainly by pacer and sprinters. The shed remained standing as a place to store condemned coaching stock through the 90's and into the 00's when the shed was finally severed from the mainline to become a sort of time capsule cut off from the rest of the working depot.

    After a few days planning this visit, I decided to head up there although was concerned if it would not be accessible after being derelict for so long. Once there it became apparent that you only needed to climb over and then slip through another fence. Inside it gave off an amazing feeling, it's hard to explain unless you've not been on a railway related explore yet. The atmosphere was only added to by the working depot next door, as trains went by on the ECML and that oily smell that was in the air. It was also much nicer than any other abandoned building I've been in, light was flooding in through the glass roof and it had been reclaimed by nature (mainly brambles and pigeons).

    No idea what any of this is, but it's in the first room on the way in.

    I have a few more pictures, but it gets a bit repetitive because it's not that large. There were a few more rooms although they were to dark had nothing in or were just too creepy, like the old toilets full of loco doors.

    Hope you enjoyed :)

    I can see access in that first phot lol. However, interesting report mate and somewhere I've never seen, even when working trains through the 'Heaton Depot' I know.
