Wasn't sure where to put these - bus related, but in Motherwell...

These are the remains of the Motherwell depot.

Jeez-o they got to work there pretty quick. Another one bites the dust :-( It was never GCT, but it's got some history behind it.

Just last year.

Too late, there's nothing left but piles of rubble now.

I was really shocked at how quickly the whole place disappeared - glad I got those pictures when I did! They're from the Hamilton Road side, rather than the Airbles Road side.

Kenny - sorry I never pinched the sign for you. The road was busy and some guy in a car pulled up right behind me to watch me as I was taking pictures! 8O

Great photos, was the place lying open, or did you go over the gate ?

There was a fire in one of the buildings a while ago and it was never repaired . The building is still blackened with the roof burnt out as far as I know.

Also, graffetti artist already tag the rolling stock that sits outside the depot and much of that looks rusting, disused and broken.

Say it ain't so! They can't close Motherwell Depot: The mighty 66B of lore. Prince of motive power miscellany. This was one of my all-time favourite haunts back in the day and a great hive of activity. Surely this can't happen!
