The Depot is a large railway depot with multiple sheds on the Skarloey Railway. It is located between Cros-ny-Cuirn and Bluebell Valley.
History and Operations
The Depot is the main area where the Skarloey Railway engines sleep and collect their trains. The sheds consist of two brick sheds, one single lined, one double and a double lined open wooden shed. There is also a goods station at the depot and
Mr. Percival's House is located opposite. Lots of trucks have been kept here and the depot is usually quite busy. Since the sixteenth season, a standard gauge line which is a part of Stepney's Branch Line has been added and runs through the depot.
It was introduced in the
sixth season, replacing the Crovan's Gate Sheds.
