History and Operations
In the Railway Series, since shortly after Daisy's arrival, Toby, Henrietta and Elsie have generally been sheded overnight here instead of at Ffarquhar Sheds. In Clive Spong illustrations, what appears to be a two-berth shed can be seen behind Knapford Junction.
In the television series, Knapford Sheds was introduced in the seventh season. 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 Produce 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.
