Diesel Depots

Can anyone refer me to sites/photos of diesel depots and TMDs (preferably in colour)?

I've scanned fototopics and google searched but can't find all that many.

Specifically I'm looking for shots of actual depot sheds and paraphernalia rather than locos.

Thanks in anticipation.

There's some photos (black and white only) in Chris Leigh's book "A Railway Modeller's Picture Library", published by Ian Allan in 1995. It often turns up on book stalls at MR exhibitions and the like.

Topics covered include Fueling points for diesels. But there's no specific pictures of a diesel depot.

There is a Diesels and Electric Modellers' Group, I think it is called and they may have more information - try searching with 'DEMG'.

Did you search for the depot names themselves as decribed at the back of Platform 5's British Railways Pocketbook series?
Here's some photos of my local diesel depot at Ipswich, which must be the most photographed fuelling point in the country!

An unidentified Class 57 fires up beside Ipswich Fuelling Point.

66517 and depot stores wagon (bogie container flat with one unmarked container on it at the stabling sidings, 20/07/06.

A trio of 66s resting in the December fog and murk for their Christmas break, 22/12/06.

A pair of class 86s doing exactly the same as the 66s above!

A hurriedly-taken pic of the fuelling point taken on my mobile whilst changing trains!

Hope this provides inspiration.
