History and Operations

The Railway Series

Knapford Sheds was constructed during the rebuilding of the Ffarquhar Branch Line that occurred in 1956. It is a two berth shed located at the end of a short siding, slightly north of the station. Since shortly after Daisy's arrival in 1960, Toby, Henrietta and Elsie have generally been sheltered overnight here instead of at Ffarquhar Sheds. Victoria would join them in 2007.

Thomas & Friends

Knapford Sheds is a large eight-berth shed, with a smaller maintenance shed located alongside. Emily, Arthur, Salty, Harvey, and Murdoch were first based here. Spencer also stayed here on his first visit to Sodor. The shed also consists of a repair shed and a foundry, where Bulgy was repaired and later converted into a vegetable Stand on Wheels. Thomas had to stay at Knapford Sheds with Emily after Tidmouth Sheds was demolished to make way for the new sheds, in Calling All Engines!. After the new sheds were constructed, Emily moved from here to Tidmouth. After James had an accident that resulted in Tidmouth Sheds being damaged, Thomas had to spend a week at Knapford Sheds while the main roundhouse was being repaired.

The Repair Yard was located here until it moved to Tidmouth Sheds in the eighth series.
