Waterloo Underground Depot is a London Underground maintenance depot which stables the Waterloo & City line's fleet of 1992 Stock trains. The depot is entirely below ground and is situated beyond the Waterloo & City line platform end at Waterloo Underground station.[2] Trains from Bank reverse at the depot before returning. It is one of the smallest depots on the Underground network.

History

Around 1987, Class 487 EMUs were allocated to the depot.[3] Class 482 trains were also stabled here when the line was operated by British Rail prior to 1994.
