'Asleft', a fireman at Kidderminster between 1945 and 1949, described Kidderminster as "...''a small but complete engine shed. The men working there were an example in miniature of the range and types of men found at larger depots''". In addition to the drivers and firemen based there, there was a small workshop with a small fitting staff responsible for simple repairs such as adjusting brakes and repairing blown joints, although larger repairs such as the removal of pistons and valves were carried out elsewhere. One man was normally responsible for boiler washouts and working on the coal stage<ref>[[Bibliography#Books|'Asleft' (1978)]], pp. 42--43.</ref>.
