I was amazed at how many of the 26 books I remembered - also at the way Awdry kept creating new railways on the Isle of Sodor so that he could calque real railways onto them (the Tallyn railway, the Ravenglass & Eskdale etc) until the island was rather overcrowded with them.

That's one thing that always puzzled me as a kid, why would an island somewhere off the west coast need more railway lines than the average metropolis?


I assume that the main line takes holidaymakers to the western port from where they go to the Isle of Man - a fair amount of traffic there. And all the other lines have at least a token justification in the form of various industries etc - quarries, farms, ports, tourist attractions.

I wonder if we're looking at this one from the wrong angle.

Sodor is actually a biomechanical civilisation which breeds its own humans for recreational purposes, and Fat "controller" is actually an ironic title. I present my evidence here:



Ordinary human.



Sodor hominid simulacrum.
