Our new base

In April 2015 ALRS volunteers moved locomotives, rolling stock and workshop equipment from our previous base in Sheffield to Peak Rails’ Rowsley site. Here we will soon erect a new workshop shed, complete with new sidings and facilities. In October 2014 a replacement shed was sourced in Sheffield, inspected, then dismantled before being transferred to our base in Sheffield for temporary storage.

The pictures show the site, the shed at original inspection, then being dismantled, the site being prepared for concrete, and an impression of how the new shed will look, and shed components awaiting construction.

This development will allow us to restore, renovate and maintain ALR compatible rolling stock at a location which is eminently  suitable for a rapidly expanding heritage rail organisation.
