Railside Tales is a spin-off series of The Railways of Crotoonia, which premiered on February 18th, 2018 with two episodes debuting on a DVD release entitled Adventures on the Rail-Road; it later premiered on YouTube on March 9th, 2018 as part of a weekend-long event entitled Crotoonia's Railside Weekend. It was conceptualized by Reuben Hoyle, and initially planned to be "inbetweens" for half-hour blocks of Crotoonia episodes. However, when the original four-to-five minute runtime was increased to six minutes, it became an individual side-series. The series uses the same animation style as regular ten-minute Crotoonia episodes, but is narrated and animated in a "static animation" style reminiscent of early Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends episodes.
