THE DERELICT YEARS.

The sad site awaiting demolition in late 1999
How many fitters have looked out of this window, in the carriage shed, and longed for the end of the working day?
Abandoned British Rail machinery in the carriage shed.
A comment on the state of the site in 1999.
The new road that was built to give access to the new Tesco supermarket and the multiplex cinema complex, was built on the site of 6G, and was named "Ffordd 6G Road" in memory of the steam locomotive and carriage shed.
The lone diesel awaits a decision on her future in August 1999 when the carriage shed had been re-coded LJ to service the diesel locomotives that worked the North Wales Coast.
This view of the carriage shed roof in August 1999 is a sad indictment
of the dereliction that was allowed to develop

Another sad view showing the dangerous condition of the glorious large glass roof structure, in August 1999, that was soon to be demolished.
