Eskbank Locomotive Depot

The old Turntable foundation at the site of the former Eskbank Locomotive Depot is now being uncovered. For more than 50 years the turntable has been covered with soil. The pits from two of the three roads in the shed have been dug out and can be seen to the left of the turntable pit.

A 60' turntable is being obtained from Coolah and will be installed on the original site just below the old Blast Furnace. A repilca of the original Engine Shed will be built on the site in the near future.

More images of the Eskbank Locomotive Depot are available in the Gallery.
