Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

The story goes that when the Reverend WV Awdry was looking for a location to base his "Thomas the Tank Engine" books, a visit to the Isle of Man provided the inspiration. The Christan Diocese which covers the island is for historical reasons called "The Diocese of Sodor and Man". Noting the absence of an island called Sodor, Awdry concocted an imaginary island of the coast of England large enough to host a series of train lines for Thomas and friends.
