Depot (/ˈdɛpoʊ/DEP-oh or /ˈdiːpoʊ/DEE-poh) is from the French dépôt which means a deposit (as in geology or banking) or a storehouse. In English, depot can mean any one of a number of things, with minor variances between the different English speaking countries:
Castaway depot, contains stores and survival gear for victims of shipwrecks
A train depot, where mainly locomotives are sheltered and repaired
Used as a part of railway station's name, because the same place was previously or still is being used as a train shelter and naturally became a railway station as well (e.g. Boise Union Pacific Depot)
Bus garage or 'bus depot', where buses are sheltered when not in use
