The Arlesdale Railway owns two types of trucks.

Hoppers

Hoppers are bogie wagons used for transporting ballast. The miniature engines take them to the ballast mines, fill them up, and then bring them back to Arlesburgh, where they are then placed on the chute. The loads drop out from the bottom of the trucks into the standard gauge trucks below, and the North Western Railway engines take the ballast to their own railway.

Basis

The hoppers are based on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway's ballast hoppers.

Livery

The hoppers are painted brown with "ARLESDALE" painted in white on both sides.

Trivia

  • In The Railway Series, the ballast hoppers are made of metal. In Thomas & Friends, they are made of wood.

Open Wagons

Open wagons are four-wheeled plank wagons used primarily for transporting wool bales. The miniature engines take them to the farms, where the farmers load the trucks with the bales of wool. The loads must be tied down for safety.

Basis

The open wagons are based on standard gauge 7-plank open wagons, scaled down accordingly.

Livery

The open wagons are painted coral pink with black frames and grey buffer beams.
