Steamtown is based at the old Carnforth MPD (Motive Power Depot), and hence has a genuine atmosphere to it. It includes running sheds, offices and workshops, a coaling tower (seen here) ash disposal, water columns, 70ft turntable, and a carriage and wagon shop.
It was the intention of Steamtown to recreate as far as possible the original "look-and-feel" of a main line MPD. However, I'm told by Ben Fisher that Steamtown is now closed to the public, and serves mainly as a depot for a private carriage overhaul firm.
