The Sodor Railway Museum was built when Sir Topham Hatt had the idea to increase the number of visitors that come to Sodor. Unfortunately, the museum was not very successful until Thomas had an accident which involved him crashing into the museum. Crowds gathered to see the commotion and the museum was full of people. The museum is said to be home to some old locomotives and some pieces of rolling stock. Percy once ran a "Museum Special" that took visitors to the museum. Although unconfirmed, the museum now appears to have full-scale models of Thomas and James.
