VIDEO: Lomond Street in OO gauge

An award-winning OO gauge layout by Nick Skelton from Scarborough and District Railway Modellers.

Lomond Street portrays a fictional Glasgow diesel depot in the mid-1980s.

The depot, a former North British Railway steam shed, has re-opened on a temporary basis with an allocated shed code LS. This follows the partial closure of Eastfield depot, Glasgow (ED) after a fire. It has taken responsibility for the ED West Highland locomotive allocation including the ETHEL train heating units, the divisional manager's saloon and a 45 ton breakdown crane. Locomotives from other depots visit LS from time to time for servicing and re-fuelling.

When re-opening the premises it was discovered that the front wall of the shed had subsided, hence the supporting buttress.  Like most temporary accommodation, space is at a premium and the Shed Foreman struggles to dispatch locomotives on schedule to work light engines to Glasgow Queen Street or Mossend for their allocated passenger and freight trains.
