Ballahoo in the TV Series

Ballahoo is a dormitory town for Barrow-in-Furness. It has a station served by a joint North Western Railway/National Rail service from Barrow, and is on the Norramby branch line.

Ballahoo is notable for its two bore railway tunnel. The first was constructed in 1915, but partially collapsed due to poor construction, thus dividing the tunnel.

The second tunnel was cut in 1922 when Henry stopped in the first tunnel and refused to come out. As it was impossible to move him, it was decided to instead cut a new bore. When Henry was finally removed, both tunnels remained in service. As a result of these events, the tunnels were nicknamed "Henry's Tunnel".

In the television series, Ballahoo station only appeared in the sixth season episode, It's Only Snow. The town reappeared only once in the CGI Series in Day of the Diesels.
