 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

Our aims...


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 and historical
information - and our annual meeting is usually staged in a depot or related structure.
