Hawick Shed opened with the line from Edinburgh. It remained on the same site until closure. It was to the immediate north of Hawick [1st] station, the original terminus, which was to become the site of the goods shed when the line was extended south through Hawick [2nd] in 1862. Further goods facilities opened to the north of the shed, resulting it its being in the middle of a goods yard. (These replaced sidings lost in the opening of the new station.)
The shed was approached from the north east. Originally it was approached via a turntable, relocated much further north east with the extension of the line. It was a two road shed with a large water tank at the south west end. In 1955 the shed was re-roofed at the north east end entry rebuilt with a girder replacing the double arches.
British Railways assigned the code 64G.
The shed closed in 1966, locomotives being assigned to St Margarets Shed. Hawick station remained a signing on point.
The site is now part of the Teviotdale Leisure Centre.
