Tales of Two Sub-sheds – Tewkesbury and Cheltenham Malvern Road Introduction There was always something magical about viewing locos in the dark shed, with steam hissing gently, water gurgling in boilers and dripping out of injector overflows, along with the pungent aroma of coal smoke drifting around casting ghostly shadows in the dim lights, and no-one else in the building. This article takes a look at two BR steam sub-sheds in the early s, less than ten miles apart, but originating with different railway companies and on different lines. When Tewkesbury closed, some of its remaining work was taken over by Malvern Road. Tewkesbury ‘engine house’ was a brick building, completed by August according to a meeting of the railway proprietors, and was just big enough for one small tender loco, with others having to stable outside in the cramped yard. It was situated ‘beyond the first level crossing in the Oldbury’ close to the town centre alongside the branch line from Ashchurch to Tewkesbury station and was probably opened at the same time as the station, July , but possibly earlier to service the contractor’s locomotives used in construction of the branch. An newspaper report stated: It was also in that the line was extended to Tewkesbury Quay, though locos did not venture onto the Quay; presumably the section was horse-worked. In the branch from Ashchurch was extended to Upton-on-Severn, Malvern Wells and Great Malvern with a replacement Tewkesbury station built on the through line, but the shed remained in use.
