EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph, the Tetbury Goods Shed and Engine Shed at Tetbury station in Gloucestershire stand proudly, harking back to a bygone era of steam railway transport in the 1940s. The image captures the essence of a bustling railway scene, with the large red brick buildings, their arched windows and doors, and the steam trains that once filled the station with life. Tetbury station, which opened in 1889, was a vital part of the Tetbury Branch Line, which connected the market town of Tetbury to the larger railway network. The Goods Shed and Engine Shed were essential structures for the efficient operation of the railway, with the Goods Shed handling the loading and unloading of freight and the Engine Shed housing the locomotives that powered the trains. The photograph offers a glimpse into the past, with the steam trains and their billowing smoke, the men in their railway uniforms, and the hustle and bustle of activity around the sheds. The red brick buildings, with their large arched windows and doors, are a testament to the engineering prowess of the time, and the steam trains, with their intricate details and powerful presence, are a reminder of the romance and adventure of the railway age. Sadly, Tetbury station closed in 1964, and the Goods Shed and Engine Shed have since been repurposed. Today, the Goods Shed is an arts venue, showcasing the work of local artists and craftspeople, while the station site is a car park. However, this photograph preserves the memory of a time when the Tetbury station was a hub of railway activity, and the Goods Shed and Engine Shed were integral parts of the railway infrastructure.
