History & Operations
Thomas & Friends
The Sodor Shipping Company is the business largely responsible for trade between the
Island of Sodor, the Mainland and beyond. Exports handled by the company include china clay from the nearby clay pits, slate from the Blue Mountain Quarry and fish, which are transported by Henry and the Flying Kipper. The company also imports goods that can not be grown or made on Sodor, such as bubble mixture for Mr. Bubbles, rock salt, and most importantly; Coal.
The company operates at least two large warehouses, one at Brendam and another at Knapford, which cover three railway lines and loading platforms, and houses freight trains waiting for departure. The Brendam building contains the office of
the Dock Manager, and is also used as a makeshift shed by  Salty and Porter.
