Rugby NR Depot

Hi all, thinking of taking a walk from Rugby station soon but by the looks of it from viewing Google Earth, it seems difficult to get to, or a very long circuitous trek..

Is this the case? Many thanks..

In the past, machines used to stable under the pin on the map here, only viewable from Hunters Lane, off the A426 - a very long walk from the station.

That being said, I'm not sure how up-to-date the profile page is. Do machines live nearer the station nowadays? Not sure. If so, some bits may be visible from the footbridge in the middle?

Maybe someone who has visited recently can update...

There's a general view from the long footbridge - named The Black Path on Google! Main entrance is off Hunters Lane and yes some stuff used to be visible here but I've not been for a few months.

On recent visits to Rugby I view from a few places (except the multi-storey car park). I'd assume that 'non-Colas' machines still stable in the sidings by the station. Viewing points I use are Hunters Lane (upto NR Access Gate), the Black Path (this views over Hunters Lane and NR Depot, but the Geismar mini 4-4's are difficult to ID), Myson House Access Point off Railway Terrace, and Arches Lane for a partial view of the Colas Depot
