Bristol Barton Hill TMD is a Traction Maintenance Depot located in Barton Hill, Bristol, England. The depot is situated on the Great Western main line and is northeast of Bristol Temple Meads station.

Allocation[edit]

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.

Derailment[edit]

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]
