Edward's Branch Line

Edward runs a branch line running from Wellsworth along a peninsula to Brendam Docks. BoCo and occasionally Donald and Douglas assist in running the line. Thomas also worked on the branch line while a bridge on was being repaired on his branch line.

The bigger engines are forbidden to travel along the line due to the weaker rail construction, however Gordon was once switched onto the branch line with the express by accident.

History and OperationsEdit

The branch, originally part of the Wellsworth and Suddery Railway, opened in 1870. The eastern end became a branchline after the North Western Railway opened in 1915.

There is extensive china clay traffic from Brendam. There are peak passenger "through" trains to and from Tidmouth, at other times there is a local service from Wellsworth to Brendam.

A small scrapyard, known as Crock's Scrapyard, is situated on the line. Edward consistently brings scrap metal to and from the yard. Reg works here.
