About us... The Engine Shed Society is the only British organisation specialising in the subject of motive power depots and related structures.
Founded in 1986, its field of
coverage includes: -
Locomotive, carriage and wagon works, Stabling points
Steam, diesel and electric depots (both extinct and extant)
Loco allocations and staff rosters, Shed histories
Coaling towers and other ancillary structures
Broadly, the aims of the society are:
To provide an information exchange between members
To build up a full list of every single standard gauge MPD, sub-shed, stabling point and works complex that ever existed,
including industrial, military, multiple unit and underground depots.
To monitor the status of surviving shed buildings or site re-usage of those which have been demolished or converted.
To liaise with official bodies and pressure groups with a view to preserving or listing depots of
outstanding architectural value.
To record for posterity the reminiscences of former shed employees.
All members receive an excellent quality quarterly
illustrated journal, LINK, packed with contemporary
information - and our annual meeting is usually staged in a depot or related structure.
