The Ffarquhar Branch Line was one of the areas that Chris Awdry focussed upon the most throughout the Railway
Series, but did very little in terms of development with at the behest of the publishers.
With the creative freedom that SiF is able to exploit, we capitalised upon the Ffarquhar Branch Line and expanded
it to suit our own wants and needs. Previously, the extension to Ulfstead had
been as part of a SiF Anniversary ERS Book, which came completely out of the blue to everyone.
This time around, it was worked into plotlines and new volumes to further exploit the development and make it a story
arc in its own right.
also added in three new characters in the form of Brad, Rosie and Ted to join the ensemble, expanded Ffarquhar Station yard
and the Harbour at Knapford.
