Custom Sodor Steamworks
I was on the Wong Village Twitter, when I found they retweeted something somewhat unusual; A boy wanted the Wooden Railway Steamworks for Christmas, but his father thought the official version was lackluster and built one for him instead (like I would've done).

However, this is no average substitute made of cardboard, LEGO or existing buildings. The guy seems to have experience in carpentry or architecture, because this is a flawlessly constructed scratch built replica made mostly of MDF.

Needless to say, this thing is much larger and more accurate than any destination ever released. Surely his son was over the moon before he even played with it, but it may have been dismantled due to its massive size. Normally childless adult fans would put so much effort into a Thomas & Friends project, but this is even greater than some of the stuff they've made. The roof is 3D printed plastic and is removable. Yes, the transfer table works. As expected, there's also an interior:

The overhead crane is just like those in official destinations, and in fact resembles that of the Percy at the Dieselworks set except better designed.

Even the plans were eerily professional, as if done by an architect:
