The Island of Sodor is a fictional island where both the Railway Series takes place. It is located in the Irish Sea, between the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man.
The Railway SeriesEdit
The Island of Sodor was first introduced in the first book, The Three Railway Engines and was cornered by a few railways on the island. Maps of Sodor were made by Wilbert Awdry and with some illustrators for the twenty-six books made by the reverend. The Island of Sodor in later years of Christopher Awdry was connecting express and goods services to the United Kingdom as its terminus was at Barrow. Crewe was also a place in the United Kingdom where it was mentioned in Henry the Green Engine as Sir Topham Hatt said, "a fine place for sick engines". The name came from Sudria who was a hero of the Dark Ages who drove the Normans away from Sodor, but in real life, the name came from the Bishop of Sodor and Man. The Island of Sodor is approximately sixty-two miles east to west and fifty-one miles north to south.
