Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia

Crovan's Gate Yards is a shunting yard located nearby the Skarloey Engine Sheds in the television series. It only appeared in the fourth series.


Thomas & Friends

The yards contain both standard and narrow gauge tracks, with the works shed in the middle and a roundhouse on the far side. The buildings in the yard all follow a similar crenellated style to the main station at Crovan's Gate. The Main Line passes by one side of the yard, next to the works shed.

When Rheneas returned from the works after an extensive overhaul, he was unloaded here to a chorus of cheers. Later, Rusty spoke to Douglas here about finding an engine to run the Bluebell Branch Line. When Stepney left the North Western Railway, it was here that the engines gathered to see him off.

When Peter Sam's Slate Trucks fell off the Old Iron Bridge, Sir Topham Hatt punished him to work here indefinitely until he learned not to leave trucks breaking away.
