Plot overview

The first season focuses on the lives of the engines of Sodor during The Great Depression in the 1930s; the season premiere begins in 1934, and the finale ends it in 1938. It takes place after the passing of the Railways Act in 1921, which amalgamated the majority of Britain's rail operating contracts, and therefore the rail companies, to the "Big Four". This leads to 2 different railway companies, The London and North Eastern Railway, & The London, Midland, and Scottish Railway competing for the supremacy of Sodor's various freight and passenger services. The events are told from the perspective of one of the North Western Railway's oldest engines, Edward.
