The Vicarstown Bridge is the only bridge that crosses over the Walney Channel. The bridge was constructed in 1915 to connect the North Western Railway with British Railways, due to the amounts of engines that would come and go.
The Walney Channel first appeared in the 2013 special King of the Railway and has appeared ever since.
- Although the Walney Channel was never named, it was first mentioned in the first series episode, Tenders and Turntables. It was officially named in a segment from Landmarks of Sodor.
