Ahh, Montpelier Bristol, my old local station. Looks like it's had a bit of a paint job since I last went there.

 

A few pics from Vic Berry's Scrapyard, Leicester, England.

 

"Vic Berry's is a large, abandoned railway scrapyard in the Goods Yard and Engine Shed area of south central Leicester. It is currently maintained by British Road Services.

 

Making use of its rail link with the Leicester to Burton line, a great deal of trains were accumulated in what became famously large stacks of trains.

 

Vic Berry's permanently closed for business in the 1990s after one of these stacks of scrap trains containing some sort of refuse (possibly asbestos) caught fire."
