Knapford Yards is a shunting yard located in Knapford. In The Railway Series, the yard only contains a few sidings and is located just in front of the station. 

In the television series, however, it is significantly larger and has plenty of sidings for trucks, as well as a carriage shed. It also has a high-level section of track, although it is unknown where it leads. It is located just north of the station.

Knapford Yard has been seen frequently since debuting in The Railway Series. Stafford and Charlie are based here in the television series and Stanley, Nia, Diesel and Philip have also been seen working here.
