The locomotive shed (for the construction-era tramway locomotives) was demolished when the site was cleared at the end of construction works. However, its site can still be identified by a long, thin, grass-covered linear depression in the ground. This is visible in the large image below (leading-up from the bottom edge, slightly to the right of centre).
