In the magazines, Little Barford runs on a narrow gauge line near the power station. Murdoch once had to deliver coal there when the power station ran out causing a blackout in the 2004 magazine story, Blackout!
The Railway Series
In 1923, the Peel Godred Power Company was established as a subsidiary of the British Aluminium Company to build a hydroelectric dam harnessing the power of the three lakes: Corloey, Dubbyn Moar and Loey Machan. They were also responsible for funding half of the construction of the Peel Godred Branch Line (with the North Western Railway funding the other half) in order to transport bulky equipment to their site, as the Mid Sodor Railway's small size would be inadequate for the task.
