Here is the Coal Depot which, as you can see, is another location to have had lighting installed during the past couple of weeks.
This has always been a dark area of the layout due to the fact that it is situated in a poorly lit corner of the room and also because, by its nature, the colour of the landscaping consists predominantly of blacks, browns and greys.
However, the lights have helped to illuminate the site nicely as well as imbue it with a certain amount of atmosphere.
In the photo we see the depot as dusk descends. Its designated locomotive, D8568 'Ribble Cement', stands at the head of a short rake of coal trucks while, around and about it, depot workers get on with their various tasks.
