Season 14 of Adventures on Rails contained ten episodes that aired from 22 October to 31 October, 2013.
My good friend, the late Rev. W. Awdry left a rather big gap in the 1970s. Many people have questioned why. I was requested by Christopher to write for this big time period. I can tell you, life on Sodor wasn't boring. Many things happened! And these are just some of these.
I hope you enjoy them.
Sincerly, The Author.

The season will take place during the '70s and introduce Salty. Much of it will be original content due to lack of Railway Series books in the '70s, however it will include 'Ghost Train' and be the last episode and Halloween special. This season will also see Victor and Kevin's official introduction.
- James and Paxton was a draft episode and was never meant to be aired, but some real life inspiration forced the writer to keep it on.
- This is the last season to have Charles Topham Hatt as Fat Controller.
