The Railway Series
At some point between 1924-1925, Ryouma accidentally ran into the yards with some Troublesome Trucks. Stoick the Vast then reallocated Ryouma here from Vicarstown to gain more experience. After rescuing Asterix with the Breakdown Train, Ryouma was reallocated to his own branch line and, shortly thereafter, Thomas became the yard's main shunter.
