Crewe Loco Works from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Crewe Loco Works Cheshire UK. Crewe Loco Works was opened in 1840 by the Grand Junction Railway. TheGJR became the London and North Western Railway which in turn became the London Midland and Scottish Railway and a considerable number of steam engines were built here, with the last constructed in 1958. Under British Rail the works switched to building Diesel locomotives. Today much of the site has been replaced by houses, however the central section is still used for rolling stock maintenance and is operated by Bombardier Transportation.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
