A class 08 is based at the depot for shunting. The only trains stabled here on a regular basis are CrossCountry Class 220/221 Voyagers but other multiple units and locomotives visit for repairs or refurbishment.


CrossCountry 221129 derailed on 24 March 2014 just outside of the depot. The train suffered minor damage and nobody was injured, but the track was heavily damaged, being pulled 6 inches sideways and sleeves being destroyed along with cables and the track needed grinding down.[2]
