Sodor: The Modern Years is the series that follows on from Sodor: The Early Years.
Following season 2, there will be three mini-series', presented in a format similar to Barry the Rescue Engine and the Railway Series books. These will be Couriers and Concerns, Tinkerbell the Foreign Engine and Norramby Tales.
Following the mini-series', there will be a third 15-episode season, which will end the series.
