Description

Ferryhill Shed was located in the 'V' of the junction between the Aberdeen Railway and the Deeside Railway with approach from the north.

British Railways assigned the code 61B.

The shed closed in the 1980s and most of the site cleared, but the turntable remained and one of the shed buildings. The Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust was created to restore the turntable, to allow steam specials to Aberdeen to turn, and remaining shed. The remaining shed is on the site of the original Ferryhill Shed building.
