Ashton Depot  
Neal Mansell OO gauge 4mm scale

Ashton Depot is a medium size diesel depot, with stabling sidings behind the locomotive shed. It is set in the Midlands and shows a representation of the types of locomotives that I saw as a lad in the late 1970s and early 1980s, growing up in the Leicester area. Most of the locomotives are from the Corporate Blue era leading into the Large Logo era and finally into the Railfreight era.

There are also some engineers' wagons making an appearance, being stabled for a while, and vans delivering spares and other items for the Depot. There is a refuelling point and you will see the odd DMU appearing to be refuelled.
