This was twilight time for the once busy works, rolling stock repairs had ceased in 1983 and only the Foundry and Spring Shop remained. BREL sold the operation in 1988 and the direct rail connection to the Bolton - Preston line at Blackrod was removed in 1989. Much of the site remains intact, including the former Locomotive Erecting Shop complete with its massive overhead cranes. Heritage Centre anyone?
