Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia

Ballaswein (Commonly misspelled as Ballaswin) is a small village northeast of Harwick. It is the northernmost settlement on the Island of Sodor.

On at least two of the Reverend W. Awdry's early maps of Sodor, there is a short line from here to Harwick. This line was not mentioned in The Island of Sodor: Its People, History and Railways, so it is possible that it was an idea Wilbert and his brother George played with but scrapped. However, the line later appeared on the map of Sodor featured in the endpapers of Thomas the Tank Engine: The Complete Collection and on the 75th year anniversary map.

It was later featured in the book, Thomas Gets His Own Branch Line, erroneously depicting it as a North Western Railway station.
