Description

Derby motive power depot, 18 November 1905. Locomotives were stored here while they were not in use. They were also cleaned and checked for breakages and flaws in the engine. Many motive power depots, like this one had inspection pits between the rails, so that the workers could look underneath the locomotive to check for potential problems.
