The Victorian Railways at larger depots use to house their locos in locomotive roundhouses, which consisted of 3 distinct types.  The straight through road unit (Cohuna, Wodonga, Portland etc), which could house 1 or 2 locos, the large and massive structures that allowed entrances from multiple points like the famous North Melbourne, Ballarat East and Benalla, Maryborough depots.  The third design was a radial unit which were common around the state.  Good examples were Mildura, Traralgon, Warrnambool, Korong Vale and Cressy to name a few.  Some were built using masonry as the main structure but still to the radial design.  Seymour is a good example of such a structure.  The kit is indicative of how the sheds were in the 1960ís after having the smoke troughs that use to poke through the roof removed and then roofed over
