This is Cinnamon Square, a central area of the city, noted by its tram lines and the central railway built with a part cut and cover design. I also included a huge rail depot in the city as a look at what happens when the city expands around an industrial site, like a railway depot. I've toyed with getting rid of the depot in a future drawing and trying my hand at a Salford Quays style redevelopment of sorts, but I also did that with a new concert venue drawing inspired by the SECC in Glasgow, but I've not finished that drawing, but I will show you it soon enough. Also note that I have shown an old turntable in the depot, from the age of steam.
