The depot houses more than 320,000 items of all types, including many original works of art used for the museum's celebrated poster collection, vehicles, signs, models, photographs, engineering drawings and uniforms. Together, these form one of the most comprehensive and important records of urban transport anywhere in the world.

The depot's main purpose is to act as a working museum store. It provides 6,000 sq m of storage space in secure, environmentally controlled conditions. Here, our curators and volunteers work to catalogue and conserve objects to preserve our heritage for future generations.
