Ken Wood has just phoned me to say that a friend within the industry has advised him that the box will close under the Manchester Metro schemes and of ourse will meet demolition.

I am certainly not suggesting we are into building preservation but would ask that anybody local could perhaps make sure we get some proper record photographs / sketches and if there are local contacts could perhaps see if any artefacts could be recovered?

A Railway Circle visit many years ago brings to mind a Glasgow & Southwestern frame installed and at Marsden: a North Eastern hand me down, skulduggery from Derby me thinks. :shock: Then again: I recall the cabin that controlled access to Derby works had a Webb Tumbler Frame, he who laughs..etc.

I have just been informed the box is now a pile of ashes on the base. Arson is suspected. (I suspect the Derby Mafia, but that's another story.)
