Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia
This article is about the Loop Line in the television series. You may be looking for the balloon loop near Tidmouth.

There is a loop line that goes from Knapford through Elsbridge to just east of Crosby in the television series. Sometimes, engines who come from here were delayed at Elsbridge for connecting with Thomas. Henry was once delayed because his system was out of order, which left Thomas fuming at the junction and he left his guard behind.

Stations and Operations

The line begins on Duck's Branch Line near Tidmouth and heads east to Callandale and Callandale Fishing Yard and then through a tunnel to Elsbridge where it junctions with Thomas' Branch Line. It turns southward and passes the Sodor Construction Company Yard, Elizabeth's Shed and the Coal Hopper before ending east of Crosby on The Main Line.


No certain engines have been known to work this line consistently, however Thomas, Edward, Percy and Stepney have been known to work on the line occasionally. Gordon, Henry and James were seen to be the engines who encounter with Thomas at Elsbridge with their passenger trains.
