Depot worker

Steam locomotives were very labour-intensive. At the end of the working day, the depot workers removed ash and cinders and topped up the water tanks to prepare them for their next use. The steam locomotives were also repaired in the depot. Maintenance and repair work on the current generation of locomotives is carried out by polymechanics.
