Inscription.  
This maintenance-of-way tool shed was constructed soon after the N.Y.P.&N. Railroad was built from Pocomoke City, Maryland to Cape Charles, Virginia in 1884.

It was used by the section gang for the storage of tools and equipment used in the construction and maintenance of tracks and roadbeds between New Church and Tasley, Virginia.

The building was donated to the Museum in 1991 by supporters Joanne and Johnny Kirkpatrick. Artifacts in the building have been donated to the museum by families of former railroadmen.
 
Erected by Eastern Shore Railway Museum.
