History

Bristol East Depot was opened in 1890 to cope with extra traffic brought about by the opening of the Severn Tunnel. Closed on the 7th August 1967, the down yard remained in use as storage for engineering wagons before being lifted at the end of 2004. In 2005 new sidings were laid and the Bristol Steel Terminal opened at a cost of £400,000.
