Immingham engine shed, also known as Immingham depot, or more recently as Immingham TMD and always locally as Loco is a railway maintenance depot (Traction Maintenance Depot) located on the Immingham Dock estate, in North East Lincolnshire. The depot code is IM.
In 2015 the depot was operated by DB Schenker. A separate TMD also known as Immingham TMD, but with the depot code IN, is operated by Freightliner.
The engine shed was built by the Humber Commercial Dock and Railway company in the southeastern corner of the Immingham Dock estate. As initially built the engine shed had facilities for 60 locomotives.
The railways at Immingham were worked by the Great Central Railway, the developer of the Port. In 1923 it was taken over by the LNER and then became part of the Eastern Region of British Railways in 1948.
A new 78 feet 9 inches (24.00 m) x 367 feet 6 inches (112.01 m) diesel shed was built in 1966 south east of the steam shed, which was converted to wagon repair. In 1966 it had 90 diesels, plus 35 shunters.
Following the splitting up of the former BR Trainload business into three companies in 1994, the depot came briefly under the control of "shadow privatisation company" Loadhaul. Loadhaul was acquired and merged into English Welsh & Scottish in 1995.
