Ravenscraig Steel Works

After limestone trains were delivered to the works by British Rail, they were drawn to this reversing spur in the south east of the works before heading to the unloading point. Below the gasometers are seen the machine shop and locomotive shed. On the right is the south end of the unloading area for coal trains, the wagon being on a cable. A wisp of steam in the background right implies that, despite closure, some part of the power station was still in operation. Sadly the locomotives had been dispersed and none were sitting at their usual stabling point.
