Elsbridge is a village on Thomas' Branch Line in the Els Valley with a population of 500. The nearby River Els flows underneath a bridge (based on the bridge at Maidenhead, built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel) and enters the Sudrian Sea at Knapford.
The station at Elsbridge has a large overhead footbridge.
At one time, Elsbridge was the top station of the Knapford and Elsbridge Light Railway. After the formation of the North Western Railway and the opening of Anopha Quarry in 1914, the line was extended to Ffarquhar.
In the television series, Elsbridge is the junction to Thomas' branch line. There is a small yard and an engines shed situated here as well. It appeared in seasons one - four.
