Ffarquhar Shed began as a red-brick single shed built for Thomas, but when the Fat Controller bought Toby and Henrietta from East Anglia to Sodor, a new white-brick shed and the carriage shed were added on. The shed remained so until Percy left Tidmouth to work at the harbour when the white-brick shed was given another line.
In the Railway Series, the Carriage Shed is right next to the engine shed. When Daisy arrived, Henrietta was moved to Knapford with Toby, to take the workmen every morning there. But Toby still stayed in this shed from time to time during the day.
In the television series, the shed was only used by the three engines in the second season and were located in Tidmouth Yard instead of Ffarquhar. From the third season onwards, Thomas, Percy and Toby slept at Tidmouth Sheds and the sheds were used as the Works set. In the fifth season, Toby was relocated to Arlesdale End, on his branch line.
