Introduction
 
What is it? Visits to British Rail locomotive sheds and major stabling points from 1979 to 1994 and the
locomotives and multiple units found thereon.
 
 
Does it have a purpose? Not for most humans on the planet but it is an insight into railway life that has now disappeared, including most of the engines and a lot of the sheds too.
 
 
Why do it? I'm fascinated by numbers and this is a way of digitising my written notes - and you never know,
one day, someone, somewhere, may find it interesting!
 
 
Why is it called Shed Surprise? I like the sound of it! And you never knew just what you were going to find!
