The Duke and Duchess of Boxford own a summer house on the Island of Sodor. It is served by a halt named Boxford, on the Ulfstead Branch Line.


Thomas & Friends

The Duke and Duchess of Boxford had a summer house built when they came on their second visit to the Island of Sodor. However, five years later, Spencer came back to Sodor to build a new summer house for them. But, due to Spencer being suspicious about Thomas, this summer house was nowhere near completion when his owners arrived for their holidays. However, thanks to Thomas, Spencer and Hiro, the new summer house was completed.

The summer house was originally situated close to a railway siding, whilst the new summer house was rebuilt on the Ulfstead Branch Line. It is unknown what became of the original summer house.

The summer house was first introduced in the eighth series episode Edward the Great and then the new version was under construction in Hero of the Rails. Since the CGI switchover, the summer house halt has been christened "Boxford".

Gordon and Ferdinand were later tasked with the job of taking the Lion of Sodor to the summerhouse for the summer.

Later, Percy and Diesel collected a calliope from the summer house for their scrap train; Percy was able to fix it, and it was restored.
