Toby's Shed is a small wooden shed located at Arlesdale End on Toby's Branch Line.

Thomas & Friends

The shed is located at Arlesdale End, and Toby used to sleep here until the line closed. However, after Oliver rediscovered the line in the fifth series, the line was restored and Toby moved back here. In the tenth series, because there were lot of holes in the shed's roof, the roof was rebuilt and the old wood from the roof was recycled to build a birdhouse next to the shed.
