Balladrine is a small village located about ten miles north west of Kellsthorpe Road and about five miles south east of Killdane.

It only appeared in the seventh series.


The Railway Series

Following being deprived of his office as Bishop of Suddery, Lancelot Qualtrough lived in retirement in Balladrine, ostensibly as Curate of the small parish, but in reality was treated by all as Bishop in everything but name.

In 1954, Gordon and Henry met Bluebell the cow on the bridge which carries the railway over the Balladrine/Killaban road.

Thomas & Friends

The village is served by a small railway station which is on the Main Line. It consists of a single platform with a building, with three tracks passing by. A road bridge is located nearby.



  • The name "Balladrine" is derived from Baldrine, a small village on the Isle of Man.
  • The station appears to be a modified version of the western platform of Dryaw.
