Maithwaite Quarry Mine, also known as the Abandoned Mine and the Haunted Mine, is a mine located on an old track off Thomas' Branch Line between Maithwaite and Elsbridge and near Maithwaite Forest.


Thomas & Friends

It was abandoned long ago, and one night whilst Percy was collecting a line of vans, some of the empty mine shafts collapsed, causing the building and chimney stack above them to sink into the ground. This led Percy to believe that the mine was haunted.

Fergus once hid near the mine after he ran away from the Smelters, where he was soon found by Thomas.
