Knapford Sheds is a large 8 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 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.

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