Hither Green Depot: 5th January 1987

Class 104 DMU vehicle No. M53475 is seen alongside the former engine shed building. It is thought it had been cascaded down from the Midland Region to be converted into a staff road learning trailer. Roger Goodrum

Within the shed we see four Class 33 diesels lined up on road No. 1. On the far right is No. 33202, whilst behind are Nos. 33027 ''Earl Mount Batten of Burma'', 33040, and 33109. Roger Goodrum

Hither Green Depot

On 4th September 1989, two Class 33 diesel locomotives are seen stabled inside the original Southern Railway shed at Hither Green, No. 33056 ''The Burma Star'' leading. This locomotive was de-named in November 1990 at Stewarts Lane as a result of collision damage. It did survive into preservation, but is apparently used as a source of spares and may never run again. This side of the shed has now been demolished. David Glasspool Collection

24th February 1995


On 24th February 1995, Dutch-liveried Class 37 No. 37375 is seen stabled alongside the rebuilt engine shed complex. The pitched-roof asbestos-clad structure in the background was formerly a diesel stabling shed, but this lost its rail connection during the 1993 rebuilding work. Indeed, the track the Class 37 is residing on here has also since been lifted. The track formation in the foreground leads to the diesel refuelling shed, which is behind the camera.
