Crewe Electric Traction Maintenance Depot

Crewe EMD (known as Crewe IEMD) is an AC electric locomotive Traction Maintenance Depot situated to the north of Crewe railway station. The depot is situated off Wisaston Road on the south side of the Crewe to Chester railway line opposite Crewe Works on Victoria Avenue. The depot is operated by DB Cargo (Formerly DB Schenker, formerly EWS). The depot code is CE.

A railway friend took me round Crewe Electric Maintenance Depot in 2014. The back of the depot faces on to the Works.

There is a raft of stored locomotives here, some have been rotting away for 10-15 years

British Rail Class 08, no 08824

British Rail Class 90, no 90022

British Rail Class 90, no 90027 inside and out


British Rail Class 92, no 92013 and Royal Mail ABB Class 325, no 325014. In the background is British Rail Class 90, no 90021 which was, at the time, used on the Caledonian Sleeper service from London Euston to Inverness

This photo is at the end the British Rail fishing pond path. The big building is Crewe Works (former). The back of the arch has a single track railway line known as "Crewe Steel Works"


I popped back one night to take some atmospheric shots, here is a photo of British Rail Class 90, no 90031:



British Rail Class 59, no 59205

One of the two locomotives dedicated to hauling the royal train was on site, British Rail Class 67, no 67005

Yes, Network Rail's overhead wire maintenance train (OHL Windhoff) and mainline locomotives along with Royal Mail postal trains were in there too.
