The Sodor Dieselworks, also known as the Vicarstown Dieselworks, officially introduced in Day of the Diesels, is a repair yard that specialises in diesel engines. It is the diesel equivalent of the Sodor Steamworks. When it was introduced, the Dieselworks was run down and shabby, with insufficient and damaged equipment. After a fire broke out in the main building, it was rebuilt. DenDart and Diesel 10 live and work at the Sodor Dieselworks. 

The company's logo is a picture of a diesel engine, of similar appearance to Den's class. Both Den and Dart acquire this logo on their liveries.

In the nineteenth season, the small warehouse, that serves as an extension to the main Dieselworks building, is shown to house a large smelting foundry, where all the broken parts are melted down and reused again, to build new parts.

According to a magazine article, Dennis lives at the Sodor Dieselworks.
