The Lion of Sodor is a very famous golden statue that all the older engines remember. A long time ago it was broken and years later Thomas was sent to collect a new version of it. Thomas mistook it for a real lion and tried to feed it. He then had to get it cleaned, so he took it to the wash-down and later to the Sodor Steamworks to be polished. Thomas then returned it back to Knapford, and the Mayor of Sodor gave a speech about it.
It can now be seen on the roundabout at the road entrance to Knapford Station.
- In the thirteen to sixteenth series, the top of the statue's pedestal was gold. In the seventeenth series, it became stone.
- The statue represents the fact lions are a traditional symbol of the United Kingdom.
- Take-n-Play (normal and muddy; discontinued)
