Norrambybranchline

A map of the line

The Norramby Branch Line runs to Norramby and was part of the now-closed Sodor and Mainland Railway. The branch line was later given to Arthur by Sir Topham Hatt. He is the only known engine to work here. However, other engines have been frequently seen hauling trains along the line too.

History

From either Crovan's Gate or Vicarstown, Norramby Branch Line travels to the town of Ballahoo. From here, the branch travels to the terminus of Norramby. A joint BR/NWR service from Barrow-in-Furness serves the line (hourly; half-hourly at peak times).

In the television series, the line is known as Arthur's Branch Line and was introduced in the fifth season as the Fishing Village Line. When the branch line opened, Sir Topham Hatt first put Thomas in charge, but when Thomas had an accident, Arthur was able to ask Sir Topham Hatt if he could run the branch line. Sir Topham Hatt agreed and, as a result, Arthur now has his own branch line.

Operations and Stations

The line starts on The Main Line near the Steamworks at the Transfer Yards and junctions with Stepney's Branch Line, then travels to Ballahoo and forks into two ways, one way going toward Henry's Tunnel and the other going to Norramby. The Norramby line then comes to The Fishing Village, Norramby Church Station and Norramby Seaside Station and ends in Norramby. The "Henry's Tunnel" line travels through Ballahoo and crosses over the Hoo Valley Viaduct and ends at The Main Line.

Arthur is the only known engine to work on the line. However Thomas, HenryJames and Percy have been seen on the line many times.

Trivia

  • For some reason, it was said that the branch line was new in the seventh season, but this line was already introduced in the fifth season.
