Head Shunt

There used to be a buffer stop here as this was the end of the short head shunt on Buxton depot, every thing that came on the depot ran up to this point, the path on the left gave excellent spotting views.

Buxton depot was demolished during March (2016) having not been used for the best part of twenty years, home to the BRC&W 3car White Roofed class 104's not to mention the thirteen Tinsley out based 37/5 locomotives for construction traffic out of the quarries, along with other visiting traction.
