Maintenance time

By Richard Beckett

This was the "Loco Shed" situated between Newhaven Town Station  and the Marine Workshops (the large building on the quayside where ships engines were overhauled & repaired). The Loco Shed was where the locos were cleaned & replenished with Coal & Water and they could also be positioned on the turntable for turning so that they would be facing the right way round for hauling the trains.

I can remember going in these sheds with my dad and his sister's boyfriend. I could only have been about 5 or 6 at the time. So this would have been the early fifties. Her boyfriend was a driver I seem to remember, shame I can't think of his name.
