Just curious - been travelling to Euston this week and noticed an old
unused large shed near Euston station. Anybody know what it was used
for? It's got OHE, but the entrance for the trains is fenced off - if
you look on google maps you can clearly see it between Mornington
Terrace and Park Village E.
Looks like an old maintenance depot?
Euston Downside, I not 100% sure of the buildings history but in the
more recent past it was used by Rail Express Systems and later EWS as
the London base for the maintenance of postal stock. Primarily this
was loco hauled stock although I have seen photos of 325 units in
there. I think I'm right in saying that it only closed after EWS
completely lost all mail traffic. I had an organised visit there in
1995. My only photo from that visit is now online at:
