TendersandTurntables12

Vicarstown Sheds is an engine shed with five berths. It only appeared in the first season and later in stock footage in the fourth season. Built in the same architectural style of Tidmouth Sheds, this shed is where Gordon would not get balanced on the turntable so he can be turned round, thus taking the return train tender first, and later on, fell in a ditch in an attempt to get off pulling a special goods train. The Fat Controller has an office overlooking the sheds.

Following the 1925 agreement with the LMS to allow NWR trains as far as Barrow-in-Furness, the sheds were no longer required. It is unknown what happened to the sheds afterwards. 

Trivia

  • Vicarstown Sheds was later modified and repainted for the six-berth Tidmouth Sheds, as noted by a tooling split on the original Tidmouth Sheds, which probably explains why Vicarstown Sheds only appeared in Season 1.
  • No engines has slept in the Vicarstown Sheds.
