History and Operations

Thomas & Friends

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 on the opposite side. Lots of trucks have been kept here and the depot is usually quite busy.

Since the sixteenth series, a standard gauge line which is a part of Stepney's Branch Line has been added and runs through the depot.
