"Nil unquam simile"
— The railway's motto

The North Western Railway (abbreviated as NWR) is the main standard gauge railway network on the Island of Sodor. It was created in 1914 by the government funded mergers of the Sodor & Mainland and the Tidmouth, Wellsworth & Suddery Railways. Between 1948 and 1997, it was known as the North Western Region of British Railways. Sir Richard Topham Hatt is its current General Manager.
