Alice and Mirabel
  • Class: GWR Autocoach
  • Built: between 1928 and 1954
  • Builder: GWR Swindon Works
  • Arrived on Sodor: 1967

Alice and Mirabel are two Great Western autocoaches pulled by Duck on his branch line. They were rescued from scrap by the Fat Controller, along with Dulcie, and given to Oliver to use on the Little Western.

Bio

Around the time of Oliver, Isabel, and Toad's arrival on Sodor, the Fat Controller was in the process of re-opening the Little Western line between Tidmouth and Arlesburgh. He assigned Oliver and Duck to the line, but the only coach was Isabel. The Fat Controller was able to rescue three more autocoaches like Isabel. Two of the coaches, Alice and Mirabel, became Duck's coaches while Dulcie joined Isabel and Oliver.

Basis

Alice and Mirabel are based off Great Western Railway Autocoaches, which were used in push-pull service on branchlines. The autocoaches were efficient because it eliminated the need for the engine to run around to the other end of the train when it needed to turn around.

Livery

Alice and Mirabel are painted in the Great Western's chocolate and cream livery for coaches.
