This was the second (much larger) shed at Forfar. It was located east of the station, north side of the line, approached from the east.

British Railways assigned the code 63C and sub shed Brechin Shed. In 1958/9 it became a sub shed of Perth South Shed.

Famously in later days the shed doubled as a potato store.

The shed building still exists in an industrial estate.
