Nine train depots and stabling sidings are located across London and south west England for servicing and maintaining the South Western Railway fleet.

The branch turns off at Branksome station where trains can be seen stopping at platform 2 and reversing into the depot.

It was refurbished for the introduction of modern units when slam-door trains were replaced circa 2005. At the same time, disused quarry and ballast dump sidings behind the carriage shed were removed and a number of outdoor sidings were laid for overnight storage and servicing of units.
