The Church Runby is a church located next to a railway line on the Island of Sodor. It is unknown exactly where on the Island it is located.



  • Though the location of the railway line is inconsistent, the church building remains the same. It is possible that these are meant to represent different churches; however, the actual locations of the various runbys have never been confirmed.
  • Occasionally, the church has been depicted with a spire on top of the clock tower.
  • The church model is reused as part of the Knapford, Village Station, The Mountain Village, Maithwaite Crossing and Peel Godred sets. It was later recreated in full CGI by Nitrogen Studios.
