Breakdown lorries are recovery lorry mounted with a crane. They help broken down road vehicles by towing them away.
One breakdown lorry has yellow and orange paintwork with 'BREAKDOWN' printed above its cab in light orange. Another breakdown lorry has red paintwork with 'SODOR' printed on its sides in yellow. There is also another breakdown lorry, which has yellow paintwork only.
The breakdown lorries are based on Dodge breakdown lorries from the 1930s.
