Above: Immingham Depot recreates the substantial motive power shed which supplied locomotives for traffic to and from the docks. Capturing the spirit of the 1960s, a Robinson ‘O4’ 2-8-0 takes centre stage flanked by an Ivatt ‘4MT’ 2-6-0 and a Gresley ‘K3’ 2-6-0. Also on shed is a Sentinel 4wVBT and an ‘Austerity’ 0-6-0S
