Big up to the 28D locations map for this one.

1. The History
Dinting engine shed (shed code no.39A) is a former one-track through shed with 2 tracks passing on the south east all derived from a single feed line. The engine shed was built between 1888 and 1898 for the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway. It is constructed of red brick and is single-storey, of eight bays and with stone-coped gable ends. The coal stage and water tank were on the north-east side of the line at the southern entrance. It first closed in 1935 but was then reopened in 1942. It closed again to steam in 1954 but got a second lease of life via by the railway preservation group The Dinting Railway Centre in 1968. This closed in 1990 and the shed was again left disused. The whole nine-acre site went up for sale in 2010 and was sold for £150,000 to a group of Manchester solicitors. However they failed to get planning permission to build houses so the site has just sat there.

In terms of the nearby Dinting railway station, on the Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway, it opened in 1847. The former Manchester bound platform buildings are disused and in a very poor state of repair. Here is an archive picture before the decay set in:

2. The Explore
A last minute side explore. Very relaxed and easy access. You can't beat a bit of railbex. There turned out to be more to look at than expected so was well worth the twenty minute detour to check the place out.
