Given the EWS sign on the right and the corner of the old London Road station visible through the gap, you would be forgiven for assuming this to be an ex-railway building. Not so - Carlisle's former tram depot looking east across London Road in 2003. Officially known as the Lindisfarne Street Depot (the street on the left) it was entered by 2 x 3'6'' gauge lines opening onto 4 roads with inspection pits at the far end. Carlisle's trams ran between 1900 and 1931.
