Barrow-in-Furness Station

Barrow-in-Furness or Barrow is a town in North West England. The North Western Railway has had running powers into Barrow Central station since an agreement with the LMS in 1925. For "through" trains, NWR engines are detached and BR, "Other Railway", engines take over. Since 1925, the North Western Railway has also had a shed, turntable and servicing facility here. There is also a joint goods yard for exchange traffic.

In the television series, it was first mentioned in the nineteenth season episode, Reds vs. Blues when the local football team came to Sodor.

Trivia

  • In real life, the station is called Barrow-in-Furness, but it does not have a line running to the Isle of Walney, which was "replaced" on the maps by the Island of Sodor.
  • In The Great Race, Barrow-in-Furness town and station were not located on the main line, right after the Vicarstown Bridge. It is unknown whether this was just an error or intentional.
