This article is about 'the town'. You may be looking for 'the stream'.

Hackenbeck is a small hamlet to the west of Ffarquhar, serviced by a halt on Thomas' Branch Line. Thomas once got stuck in a snowdrift outside the nearby tunnel. The station is just north of the Hackenbeck Tunnel. A stream passes under the railway line east of the station.

Mrs. Kyndley lives in a cottage south of the tunnel.

In the television series, Hackenbeck station only appeared in the seventh season episode Not So Hasty Puddings. It was seen on a sign in Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure.
