Names from ‘engine stable’ to ‘traction maintenance depot’ have been given to the buildings that housed off-duty steam engines, diesel locomotives, and later, multiple-units. In steam days engines should either have been stabled in roundhouses or straight sheds, but in many cases they had to be prepared for duty in the open as there was inadequate covered accommodation. Countless books have been written on the steam engine, many illustrating them at rest ‘on shed’, but up until now there has been no account bringing together the history of the sheds themselves with diagrams, maps and drawings, for those in the North East of England. This profusely illustrated casebound book charts the history of the 110 engine sheds that existed between the 1840s, and the present day in the North East, whether built by the constituents of the North Eastern Railway, or by the company itself.
