To be honest from what I've seen from the staff car park I don't think there is an awful lot there at the moment, will have a nosey in an hour when I get to work though.

*edit* Just had a nosey and there's about 10 47/57s if that and a handful of coaches

Crewe DMD has around 6xClass 56s visble from the station with a few extra at the back of the depot. There is one 58 round the back although all the 60s and 56037 are kept inside the DMD. There is also a couple of 47s hidden round the back of the depot and two 47s (47796 and 47847) shunt at the depot.
There isn't a huge amount visble at Crewe IEMD, a few 08s, 90s and 92s are visble by the sounds of the last report I heard.
There is also Crewe Gresty Bridge which you can ID a bit from the depot entrance. While Crewe LNWR and Crewe Basford Hall are visble from a field but two ID locos you would need binoculars.

You can see bits of Gresty Bridge and Crewe DMD from Shrewsbury to Crewe trains, Crewe IEMD from Chester-Crewe trains, and Crewe Basford Hall and Crewe LNWR from Crewe to Stafford trains.

Hope this helps, Sam

These are three of them. When looking from the station there is 56074, 56069, 56106, 56103, 56031and 56038 (038 was formerly inside the DMD). 56077 is round the back with 58022 (both stripped) and 56037 is inside the dept (also stripped)
56103 is owned by BARS, and may well be leaving today. 56038 is owned by Edward Stevenson, and inevitabely will be Burton bound. The rest are, for now EMR owned so could be cut up.
Hope this helps, Sam
