Toryreck is a village and station on Thomas' branch line. Here, a goods line to Knapford Harbour splits from the branch line. The goods line was the original route to Knapford, but it was later realigned to service the harbour, with a new track from the main line joining the old one at Toryreck Junction, south of the station. The main branch joins the harbour line just to the west of the station.

There's a goods shed, a cattle dock and coal staithes here. There is also a passing loop, which is rarely used, only at busy times and emergencies. The station has only one platform, although later illustrations incorrectly show Toryreck with two platforms.

Toryreck was A. W. Dry's headquarters during his company's plan to reclaim some of the surrounding valley from the sea, and was developed as a centre for lead mining. Although the lead veins have since ran out and were closed in 1930, the lines running there are still used, as the old workings are now mined for uranium.

Thomas was shunted at Toryreck for Stepney's Special to pass. Percy was also stranded on the flood due to the waters of the river Els, just north of the station.

In the television series, a shed for Daisy was located here, until she relocated to the Harwick Branch Line.
