Vicarstown is a small town on the eastern side of Sodor. The North Western Railway built their terminus and headquarters here in 1915, but after a 1925 agreement with the LMS Railway to allow NWR trains to stop in Barrow-in-Furness there was no further use required. A smaller replacement station was built for the engines operating the car ferry service, and the turntable was relocated at Barrow and the headquarters moved to the other end of the main line at Tidmouth.

In the television series, Vicarstown Sheds are a roundhouse with a turntable at the front and five berths for the engines. A Goods Depot, the Sodor Dieselworks, and Vicarstown Bridge are also located here.

Vicarstown has also been mentioned semi-regularly since the seventeenth season. It will appear in The Great Race.


  • In The Railway Series, Thomas worked at the station as a pilot before working his branch line, as Thomas worked as a pilot at Knapford in the television series.
  • The name comes from the Reverend W. Awdry's time as an Anglican priest, and on maps of Sodor it replaces the real Vickerstown, a suburb of Barrow situated on the Isle of Walney.
  • In The Adventure Begins as Gordon pulls into Wellsworth station the station master announces Gordon's Express route as "The 8:17 Express to Vicarstown."
