Virgin Trains Training School S3 (aka The Bungalow)
I've been wanting to do this place for a while and with some time off work I finally managed o get down and have a look, it turns out it is nothing special quite a few empty rooms and a bog still complete with paper and soap. The building also overlooks Crewe South Junction Signal Box which has also sat empty since the late 1980's. There are a few big training rooms and a couple of small offices, anything that would be of real interest has already ben removed.

The training school was originally opened by British Rail where it was used to train staff from all over the region for various roles within the organisation, after privatisation in the late 90's ownership of the building was passed to Virgin West Coast who continued to use it as a training school before moving to another building on a nearby business park. The building was then used as a maintenance and storage area for the neighbouring Crewe Railway Station for a few years until the power was cut and the building became abandoned.












Cheers for looking :thumb
