Description

This shed was located to the north of the West-East chord of the Carstairs triangular junction. It was immediately north and east of Carstairs station. Approach was from west and east.

This was the location of the emergency Control Office in the Second World War.

It closed to steam in 1966, then re-opened and then remained in use as a diesel depot, and later as a stabling point after the building was demolished. Sidings remain, approached from the west.
