Edward runs a branch line running from Wellsworth along a peninsula to Brendam. BoCo and occasionally Donald and Douglas assist in running the line. Thomas also once staffed the line while a bridge on his branch line was being repaired.
The bigger engines are forbidden to travel along the line due to the weaker rail construction, however Gordon was once switched onto the branch line with the express by accident.
History and operations
From Wellsworth, which includes a station yard and junction to the branch, trains travel to Suddery, and finally terminate at Brendam, where an extensive harbour and engine sheds are located. There is a private quarry line to the China Clay Works, serviced by Bill and Ben.
Edward's branch line has appeared in several Railway Series books:
- Edward the Blue Engine
- Main Line Engines
- Thomas and the Twins
- Thomas and the Fat Controller's Engines
