Staveley Roundhouse was built to a standard Midland square shed design in 1870. After 1948 it became known as Barrow Hill so as not to confuse it with the ex-Great Central shed nearby. It was operational from 1870 until 9 February 1991. After becoming a listed building and following extensive renovation, the entire engine roundhouse, depot, yard, sidings and associated railway lines were all re-opened between 1989 and 1998. Ten years later it had become the home to many preserved British railway locomotives.

You need two or more turntables for the hunt. This location only has one.
