The Tidmouth, Knapford and Elsbridge Railway was one of the three original railways on Sodor.


It opened in 1883 as the Knapford and Elsbridge Railway, as it went from Knapford to Elsbridge. It then moved to Tidmouth and The Fat Director has built "Coffee Pots" to help build the extension of the line. It became the Tidmouth, Knapford and Elsbridge Railway following the extension. Soon in 1912, the railway amalgated with the Wellsworth and Suddery Railway and became the Tidmouth, Wellsworth and Suddery Railway. In 1914, the Sodor & Mainland Railway amalgated with the Tidmouth, Wellsworth and Suddery Railway to form the North West Railway. All the Coffee Pots were scrapped and the railway became part of Thomas' Branch Line.
