Engine sheds are buildings (or groups of buildings) constructed specifically to facilitate the preparation (start of day), disposal (end of day), light maintenance and short-term storage of railway locomotives. They would usually have included at least one service pit (also known as an ash pit) to enable the underside of the locomotives to be inspected, lubricated and (where necessary / possible) repaired.
