The Sodor Steamworks is a large repair yard that specializes in fixing steam engines. It is situated along the Main Line at Crovan's Gate. The Steamworks is accessible and used by the steam engines on both the North Western and Skarloey Railways. All of the essential components for steam locomotives are kept and made at the Steamworks. Heavy overhauls are also carried out here. Victor, Basil and Kevin live and work here at the Sodor Steamworks.

The company's logo consists of a chimney with steam coming out and is surrounded by a large cog wheel. Victor, Basil, Kevin, numerous rolling stock, vehicles and staff uniforms, all have this logo on their livery and appearance.

Trivia

  • Whilst Hero of the Rails was being developed, David Eves came up with the creation of the Sodor Steamworks as one of his last contributions. The idea was luckily accepted by the writers and the new animators.
  • Although it is titled the Sodor Steamworks, diesel engines have been repaired there before.
  • The Skarloey Railway connects with the Steamworks.
  • Its Railway Series equivalent is The Works.
  • The "Sodor Steamworks" has had numerous modifications throughout the years:
    • Season 13:
      • The area around the transfer table was brown (The Lion of Sodor, Tickled Pink and The Early Bird).
    • King of the Railway:
      • The area around the transfer table returned to it's original grey colour.
      • It was confirmed that Henry didn't need "special coal" anymore so the coal hopper dispenses normal coal.
    • Season 18 (in the latter half of the season):
      • Barriers were placed at each berth of the Steamworks.
      • The turntable gains narrow gauge track running to the original.
      • The narrow-gauge track has been re-positioned by a few feet, now leading onto the turntable and the buffers were removed. On the opposite side of the turntable, a set of narrow gauge points are added, also leading onto the turntable.
      • The centre track in doorway three now runs right out the back of the building instead of stopping at buffers, also the perpendicular storage tracks now disappeared.
    • Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure:
      • The buffers return, but the narrow gauge track does not.
