    The servicing and repair facilities of the present day Sumpter Valley tourist railroad are located in McEwen, the current eastern terminal of the railroad. They were built new in the seventies on the site of a former village and station stop on the original Sumpter Valley which served as a temporary terminal during the construction of the railroad in the nineteenth century. These facilities consist of a depot, a water tank and a small yard, as well as a wye and a servicing area including buildings for rolling stock storage and maintenance.
