History and Operations
The fishing village supplies the fish goods to be taken to Brendam Docks, for shipping to the mainland. Sodor's own fish supply also comes from here. The pier, the Sodor Inn and a small platform for unloading goods is located nearby. In conjunction with the fish supplies from Brendam Docks, the "Flying Kipper", pulled by Henry, also sometimes carry an extra supply of fish from the fishing village, which also gets delivered to the Mainland. In the fifth season, there was a two-tracked engine shed located here but since the seventh season, it's only a one-track engine shed.
Once, Thomas was waiting for an early morning catch of fish to be loaded into his trucks, which would be taken to Brendam Docks and then delivered to the Mainland via the flying kipper. The fishermen were using old equipment and the work was delayed. Suddenly, an old crane began to malfunction, dropping a crate of fish on Thomas in the process. The train was delayed even more for Henry, who was waiting to take the flying kipper to the mainland. But Thomas managed to get it there before too long.
Like all villages on Sodor, the fishing village also has it's own church, which is served by a small station. When Toby and his driver arrived at the station, they recieved the news that they won't going to be in the parade. Mrs. Kyndley's daugher planned to have her wedding in this church. Sir Topham Hatt and his grand children also went to the beach located next to the station. The station was first seen in the fourth season and was later rebuild and appeared again in the fifth season.
- Since the fifteenth season, there is no longer ballast underneath the rails and they are built into the concrete.
- The engine shed is currently on display at Drayton Manor.
- In My Journey with Thomas the Tank Engine, the fishing village was said to be in Suddery, given Sodor's nature as an island, there could be other fishing villages.
