A Little About The Kirkronan Branch

Throughout the Railway Series, the Awdrys never really touched upon Kirkronan a great deal.  It was never a branch line of focus like Wellsworth, Arlesburgh or Ffarquhar, and only ever appeared in the flashback of Skarloey’s  arrival on Sodor in 1865.  This was an ideal opportunity for Kyle and Simon to develop the area and it’s docklands into something a little different.

Whilst Norramby has been made to be a family seaside resort, Kirkronan has gone on to become the culture capital of Sodor, attracting a more high-class clientele, with regular boat train services now running into the Harbour, and places of historical interest being restored to attract visitors.
