In short, Dennis will be the last guaranteed public release this website will offer. He was supposed to be a private model, but instead landed in the hands of certain detestable individuals who don't deserve to have this private model to themselves. We'd prefer him to be shared by the nice, anonymous general public than privately held by unlikable people. We will only upload models in future if we so feel like it, simple as that. Enjoy Dennis at least for what he's worth.
Everyone's favorite No. 1 tank engine is now available as he appears on the Strasburg Railroad. Get him on the Classic Series Loco page today!
Major props to Tomix for this awesome model, Don't let anyone tell you different!
Two (technically three) new additions, first Whiff as a 0-4-4 as envisioned by Jim, and Cora, both in her SR and MSR liveries. Get them on their respective pages today!
p.s. The site will be going through some updating, things will be moved around and upgraded in due time.
Logan is finally released! Our biggest group project yet, featuring the modelling of Scott, basic texturing by Toby, final texturing by Brendan, everything else in between by me! Go get it on the Locomotive New Series page today!
Well this is one of many dioramas arriving soon, Glennock Station as seen in Season 18, included is a Winter Themed version. Enjoy as usual
After a certain advertisement, I made a quick Thomas face mesh for you to slap on everything! Just remember: THOMAS WAS EVERYWHERE
My Sodor Bench pack is released on the Scenery Page! Enjoy!
The M/SR trucks have been released! Go get them and biff them about with Jim on the Rolling Stock Page! Enjoy!
Tom here. Just gonna give The Workshops my two week notice so to speak. I will be taking a little "holiday" away from the computer for a while. It's been great working with everyone on the team. I hope you all enjoy everything we've done as a community.
Updated the links to Adam and Jeff in the Original Characters section. And updating some of the pictures for the models and routes.
Two addons from my old website have been moved to the Workshops- Stepney's Whistle and the Sodor Delivery Van Horn. The former was heavily edited from a standard non-looped Trainz whistle. The latter will be updated later, replacing the Post Train theme with the Skarloey Railway theme.
Other old content of mine is currently being reworked, so be on the lookout for those later.- The Vicarstown Sentinel
Donnie is now released under the OC page. Try him out now!
A double wammy release! With the various combined efforts of Toby, Nicko, and myself, we proudly present Jim. Also from Toby and I are the Skarloey Railway Open Coaches as they appear in the present day. Go get them today!
Wow.. No updates in a month. Well time to update now, Sodor Vans made by me, and kindly baked and drivable by Bob Lozuk, are released in the "Road Vehicles" section. Also expect new versions of Adam and Jeff and routes as well. Also, removed the TUGS Whistle Pack and old facepacks. Stay tuned ~NWR_Railroader
NWR_Railroader comin' at ya. I have uploaded my version of The Drain from the RWS Book Thomas and The Twins. Have fun and enjoy. If you use this route in videos credit me.
Vicarstown Sentinel here. Some new updates. New Promos have been added for Marklin and Spencer- plus a re-release of one of my old content packs- the RWS Truck Skin Pack No. 1. Perfect for use with Sean's old 2006 RWS Range- which still holds up well compared to all the baked items you see these days. Includes 2 magazine trucks plus a bonus truck I whipped up- named for a particular show that sounds like it could be a company for a private owner wagon.
In the works is my second Truck Pack. Planned items include 3 RWS Cattle Vans, 2 Hornby 80's Thomas Range trucks, reworked Classic Series and Bluebell S.C.Ruffey plus some new S.C. Ruffeys based off the Butterly Railway and Midland Centre's versions. This pack will also include 2 bonus gag trucks I'm sure some of you will enjoy.
Have fun- The Vicarstown Sentinel.
Wow, this news page has not been updated in 2 years despite content releases. Anyhoo, this is The Vicarstown Sentinel here- formerly Sodor Productions. I've abandoned my old Jimdo site in favor
of releasing my content here, and me and a few other community members have volunteered to clean up this site and make it look more professional, especially with new content being released.
I'll be moving some of my older content from my old site here as well as release new and updated content of mine in the near future. Pardon the dust as we clean up the clutter.- TVS
The Jontaneer has now released his truck pack on Sodor Workshops! Download today! -Bob
The troublesome vans have been fixed AGAIN. Please redownload them. Please remember that they only work in Trainz 2006 and up. Expect a new engine soon!
The troublesome vans have been updated AND work now with no errors. Also, the coaches that Jack (ThomasBranchline) made have been removed, as SI3D has now finished the Sodor Coaches. A new engine should be coming in soon, wait and see! --Bob

Well, good news and bad news:
Good news: Old Stuck-Up is released for everybody! I'm working on a scratchbuilt Rosie that should be done soon. I was able to get a mesh of the Climax Class B, which will be made into the new Thomas character Ferdinand!
Bad news: All of Jon's meshes have gone corrupt, I'm sorry to say. Albert, Victor (the magazine character), The Truck Pack 2--All have become corrupted, along with half of my own meshes. Luckily, The newer meshes are still around. I hate to say this, but all this happened a month ago, but I couldn't bring myself to right this up until today. Because of this, I will resign as the Sodor Workshops model exporter. I will try to contact RayTheTrainEngine to see if he will become the new exporter.
The Troublesome Vans have chameleon problems, I know gravely. Please, if anyone has the Troublesome Vans, delete the Troublesome Van, along with the face pack until I can get this sorted out.
Do to a new schedule, I will hardly get any Trainz stuff done anymore.
I am truly sorry about bringing all this bad news. I'll try to make up for it.
Good Gravy! Four Days till Christmas and not a single thing from the Workshops crew for 2 months! I'm sorry no content from me, right now, I'm as busy as ever and have barely enough time for Trainz anymore. But I'm trying to cram every hour of my free time into Trainz, and hopefully, I can get Jon's Truck Pack 2 released before or on Christmas Day. In the meantime, enjoy the Troublesome Vans from me, located on the Rolling Stock page. -- Bob.

Whewee! Wouldn't you know, Sodor Workshops is the 9th most popular site on Jimdo! ThomasBranchline and I have been working hard in GMax, and many of you have probably seen TB's Stepney as the engine of the week.

Also, another new member of ours is Nin488, who is also working in GMax and will presumably be our route creator. Here will be the current team lineup:
