Another smaller headline which includes the word "police" can also be seen.
One of Dowager Hatt's friends can be seen reading the Sodor Times in the seventeenth season episode, Henry's Hero. Some of the headlines read "New horse exhibits at Sodor Museum", "Carrot snatcher still on the loose" and "Missing shoe found." It also features an image of a cat, and a map of Sodor with a weather report.
An issue of the newspaper can be seen being read by the Grumpy Passenger in the eighteenth season episode, Duncan and the Grumpy Passenger. It uses a new front page with the same main headline as the edition seen in King of the Railway, and the rear page is taken from the edition seen in Henry's Hero.
In Wild Water Rescue, Percy was excited to have his photo taken with the rescue team, but Diesel wanted to get his photo in the Sodor Times too. So he tricked Percy into going to an old quarry and was given the job of taking the mayor and Sir Topham Hatt to the ceremony, only to find out that he wasn't allowed in the rescue team's photo. Later the photographer took a photo of Diesel being rescued from the Old Quarry for the paper, and Sir Topham Hatt showed it to Diesel the next day while he was having his engine repaired.
