Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia

Ffarquhar Sheds is the main shed for the engines that work on the Ffarquhar Branch Line.


The Railway Series

Ffarquhar Sheds began as a red-brick single road shed built for Thomas when he was rewarded with the branch line in 1925. When the Fat Controller bought Toby, Henrietta and Elsie from East Anglia to Sodor in 1951, a new white-stoned shed was added on. The shed remained so until Percy left Tidmouth to work at the harbour in 1956 when the white-stoned shed was given another line.

The Carriage Shed is located right next to the engine shed. Shortly after Daisy arrived, Toby was moved to Knapford Sheds, to take workmen from there to work every morning, but Toby still stays in this shed from time to time during the day.

Thomas & Friends

In the television series, the sheds were only used by the three engines in the second series and were located in Tidmouth Yards instead of at Ffarquhar Yards. From the third series onwards, Thomas, Percy and Toby slept at Tidmouth Sheds and the sheds were used as the Works set. In the fifth series, Toby was relocated to Arlesdale End, on his branch line.
