Skarloey Railway Engine Sheds is where the locomotives and rolling stock of the Skarloey Railway rest.

Sheds in the Railway Series

When the Skarloey Railway was under construction in 1865, a small engine shed and a carriage shed was being built by the wharf at Crovan's Gate. Originally, the engine shed was a brick structure with a single road. However, when Peter Sam and Sir Handel were purchased, an open-side shed was added to make it into a two-road shed. Later, a second track was added to the brick part of the shed, making it a three-road shed. The sheds and rails were raised up above the standard gauge tracks and there was a 'ramp' where narrow gauge rolling stock could be transferred onto a standard gauge flatbed or wellwagon.

Sheds in the television series

When the Skarloey Railway was introduced in the fourth season, the engine and carriage sheds were identical to their Railway Series counterparts, except reversed, and the wooden part of the shed had two tracks instead of one and he sheds and rails were lowered to ground level. Across from the sheds was a standard gauge shed/shunting yard and a roundhouse. The sheds were seemingly replaced by the the Depot from the sixth season onwards.

In the eighteenth season, the sheds reappeared on a curve track right behind Crovan's Gate station, however the carriage shed is missing, the brick shed does not have a back with the rails run right through them and the wooden shed only single lined. They do not appear to be used for resting at night.
