The Quarry Tramroad runs a serpentine five and a half mile course from Ffarquhar (the end of Thomas' Branch Line) to Anopha Quarry - even though a direct route between the two is only one and a half miles! Thomas ran the line until an encounter with a policeman put a stop to it; all because Thomas didn't have sideplates or a cowcatcher. In the end, the Fat Controller bought Toby to solve the problem. The sole traffic on the line is stone with a passenger train to carry workmen to and from the quarry. Later, the quarry company bought Mavis to help with the stone traffic.


  • Mavis once got stuck on a level crossing along this line after ignoring Toby's advice.
