Valley View, also known as the Woodland Way or Lakeside Runby, is a picnic stop on the Skarloey Railway, located between Bluebell Valley Station and Glennock. The Refreshment Lady serves tea here. There are picnic benches and a view of the lake.

It appeared in the fourth, seventh and tenth series, and returned in CGI in the eighteenth series episode, Duncan and the Grumpy Passenger. It resembles Skarloey Lake.



  • Concept art for the fourth series refers to this location as Lakeside Runby.
  • The lake and valley are based on Tal Fechan reservoir, near the Brecon Mountain Railway.
  • Valley View was used to represent a location on the Mid Sodor Railway in the fourth series episode, You Can't Win.
