For the general discussion of all things 'Thomas' that doesn't belong in other sections.

SiF's catchall thread 'Postopia' can be found here where members can ask general questions about just about anything Thomas-related.

alexander876: Quick question, in the bookends for the island of sodor, its people, history and railways, there is a building called coal and coke, which station is it located on the cover and what company is it a part of? Nov 9, 2019 0:15:30 GMT
Sleeper Agent: The RWS book station is a fictional/generic one as far as I know and it looks more like a kids model set rather than a proper NWR location but it was first drawn by Kenny and he also depicts C&C at Barrow when Gordon tries to run through towards London. Nov 9, 2019 9:16:21 GMT
