The Island of Sodor

Recommended Posts

You know, where Thomas and friends are at home... I just found out that while it's entirely fictitious of course, the good Rev. Awdry had actually mapped out a detailed location and history for it, and it was supposedly an island between the coast of Cumbria and the Isle of Man.

"Meh, whatever", you might say. Well I grew up on the Cumbrian coast within sight of that fictitious island, now I can spend the rest of my life boring people with that anecdote.

Mass hallucinations, hidden in plain site, man never knew Sodor as so dark! Come to think of it Sodor sounds close to Mordor...
