Date: unknown

The west end of Accrington carriage shed, with 51684 / 51709 nearest the camera, along with 2 113's, and probably 4 other 112's. Believed to be circa 1962, as the stationary steam loco that was used to heat carriages, and was kept in front of the building with the chimney, has gone, and all the vans are believed to be stored. Accrington shed closed to steam on 5th March 1961. It became 10E in 1963, and closed on 2nd October 1972. The depot was used for storage after this date, and was apparently demolished circa 1974-75.
