Vicarstown is the largest city on the far eastern side of Sodor and the final station on the Main Line.

History

Vicarstown Station is situated on a viaduct, which contains shops in several of its arches. The station is the largest on Sodor, consisting of 8 platforms with a lower level beneath them. The station is built in an elegant Victorian architectural style and is covered by a glass roof, with clock towers and signal boxes located on each end.

There is an electric tramway running along the roads underneath the viaduct, and a cathedral is located in the town, near the station.

The Vicarstown Goods Depot, Vicarstown Sheds, Goods Yard, Rolling Bridge and a Viaduct are located here. The Vicarstown Dieselworks and The Pond Runby are also located a short distance west of the town.

Trivia

  • As seen in the television concept art, several different designs were tested for Vicarstown Station before the final design was decided upon.
    • In one concept, the station was on ground level, with access to streets without walking down.
    • In another concept, the station's train shed was more level, with a gentle curve, unlike the final version.
  • According to concept art, Vicarstown's architecture is inspired by various stations including:
  • As of the twenty-second series, it appears in every episode's end segment.
