Maithwaite is a station on Thomas' Branch Line. It is located between Elsbridge and Hackenbeck. Maithwaite was once the winner of the Best Dressed Station award, despite some school boys vandalising the flower arrangements.
- The exact location of the station was unknown until 2014, when the revised television series map of Sodor clarified it as being on Thomas' Branch Line. A map from a Blue Mountain Mystery bonus feature had previously shown it situated in the east of Arlesburgh, but the map probably mistook it for Marthwaite.
- Maithwaite used to be on display at Nitrogen Studios.
- Tidmouth Bay and Killaban reused Maithwaite's building. Harwick also reused the right portion of the building.
- Heavily modified versions of Maithwaite appear in China and Australia.
- According to the fifth series episode Baa!, this is Toby's favourite station.
- In The Great Festival Adventure, a water tower was placed on the platform.
