"Henry's Tunnel" is the nickname given to the tunnel on the Main Line near Ballahoo. It got its name after Henry was abandoned there in 1922, claiming he did not want the rain to spoil his "lovely green paint with red stripes".

In the Railway Series, Henry's Tunnel was originally single-bored until Henry was bricked up inside it and a second tunnel was bored alongside.

The tunnel collapsed in Thomas and his Friends, but was repaired in time for the unveiling of the Thin Clergyman's bust at Tidmouth.


  • From the eighth season onwards, the bore that Henry was bricked up in gained a second track.
    • Also, around that time, an extra track was added above the tunnel and the tracks leading to the bores were curved.
  • A signal box and water tower has appeared and disappeared at the portal since the seventh season.
