Brendam Docks is one of the Island of Sodor's most famous ports. It is located on the coast of Brendam, at the end of Edward's Branch Line.


The Railway Series

In the early 1900s, the Wellsworth and Suddery Railway extended to Brendam and built jetties here intending to use it as a port, but after a few years, they abandoned the project and transferred to Tidmouth in 1912. The fishermen were glad of the jetties and the railway but carried on as before.

In 1948, a new harbour, capable of accommodating ocean-going vessels, was built some one and a half miles south of the old one, and a private railway laid down to link the Workings with the harbour and the North Western Railway.

In the television series, Brendam Docks has been portrayed as the biggest and busiest dockyard on the Island of Sodor since the second series. Cranky is stationed here and he always loads and unloads cargo to and from the dock. Salty, who loves to work at the Docks and tell tales of the sea, was bought by Sir Topham Hatt to work here shunting trucks. Some years later, Porter arrived to assist Salty with the heavy workloads. The station of Upper Brendam serves the town itself.

A coastal branch line runs from the port and is mainly used for fish traffic. It also appears that the Express stops here on its way to Vicarstown, to collect passengers from the many ocean liners that come in here. In the fifth and sixth series, there was a large goods shed nearby Cranky, but after he accidentally knocked it over, it has not been rebuilt or seen since. The mail barge also docks here. The Docks here are large and extensive, with many warehouses, cranes, rail yards, and canals.

The docks experienced a particularly hectic period when Salty fell off the dock and Porter was taken out of action due to flour clogging his funnel. Initially, Den was sent to help, however, the job was later re-assigned to Percy after the doors at the Vicarstown Dieselworks malfunctioned, trapping the engines there inside. Following an accident with some crates, the rest of the Steam Team went to clear up the mess and free Percy, who had been trapped.
