Signalmen work on the railways of Sodor, controlling the points and signals that send the engines to their destinations.

Occasionally signalmen fall asleep on the job, resulting in accidents.

In more recent episodes, signalmen only seem to tell the engines which tracks to take, not switch the points, though as of Wayward Winston, this seems to have ended.


  • To date, only one signalman has been named: Mr. Edwards.
