Even the station has changed!

Building 4 still in all its Glory

The following announcement was issued by Converteam at Mill Road Rugby works :

"The British Thomson Houston office block, Building 86, will be demolished from Tuesday 15 April.2009
These prestigious offices were first opened in 1938, survived bomb damage and numerous changes of company name, and are now destined for the crusher.
Converteam's Central Facilities have, for many months, been recycling items of interest from Building 86 and the latest successful mission was to remove the British Thomson Houston stonework from over the entrance for eventual re-use with the relocated war memorial, preserving the heritage." The end of an era !! Kind regards, 
Jim McKay
Thanks to John Hyde for taking and sending in the Photograph.

Sad to see where we spent those formative years as is now!
