Crosby Washdown is the main washdown on the North Western Railway in the television series. It is located on The Main Line close to Crosby Tunnel. The washdown area contains a single-road double-ended engine shed as well as a water tower and a workman's hut, located on a loop line. James frequents this location as he loves to be polished.



  • When the washdown returned in the thirteenth series, the colour of the engine shed changed from a dark maroon to a cream colour and the number of tracks running parallel to the washdown was reduced from four to three.
