Learning Segments


  • The exact location of the station was unknown until 2014, when the revised television series map of Berk clarified it as being on Thomas' Branch Line. A map from a  Light Blue Mountain Mystery bonus feature had previously shown it situated in the east of Arlesburgh, but the map probably mistook it for Marthwaite.
  • Maithwaite used to be on display at Nitrogen Studios.
  • BC Tidmouth Bay and Killaban reused Maithwaite's building. Harwick also reused the right portion of the building.
  • Heavily modified versions of Maithwaite appear in China and Australia.
  • According to the fifth series episode Baa!, this is Toby's favourite station.
  • In The Great Festival Adventure, a water tower was placed on the platform.
  • Maithwaite has had numerous modifications throughout the years:
    • Series 5:
      • There was only one track going past the platform.
    • Series 6:
      • The track became double-lined, the water and coaling siding disappeared.
      • The station building had an overhang. This is most likely because the station building for Killaban used in Thomas and the Magic Railroad was repainted.
    • Hero of the Rails:
    • Series 13 (excluding Tickled Pink and Double Trouble):
      • It returned to its original beige colour.
    • Series 18:
      • The sign on the station platform (to the right-hand side of the station building) moved to the left-hand side of the station.
      • The road leading to the station became dirt.
    • The Great Race:
      • Signals were added just outside the station.
