    Hi all. I was trying to find pictures of the former project at Preston Park, but I can't really find any. Could someone please point me at any websites that have pictures? Thanks.

    The Pullman shed was demolished some years ago after the last rail vehicles were removed. Steam Railway did a clear factual report about moving the last items of decrepit stock.

    Cheers, Neil

    Thanks Neil, I remember all that. I am looking for pictures on the web of the stock inside the shed, and the locos in the sidings.

    Does anyone know what happened to D3255 and the two Rustons that were in the shed? I'm sure I did read about their fate somewhere but I can't find anything about them now.

    D3255 moved to the Colne Valley Railway. I've seen reports that it was moved to York from the CVR, and may have been scrapped but has not been confirmed.
    Still looking into the Rustons

    In August 2009, wnxx said: "The future for this veteran appears to be resolved now as it has been sold and moved north from the Colne Valley Railway to a private site near York."
