Breakdown lorries are a type of recovery lorry which are mounted with a crane. They help to tow away road vehicles which have broken down.

Technical Details


One of the breakdown lorries has yellow and orange paintwork with the word 'BREAKDOWN' printed above its cab in light orange lettering. Another such lorry has red paintwork with 'SODOR' printed on its sides in yellow. There is also another lorry which has yellow paintwork only.


These vehicles are based on Dodge breakdown lorries from the 1930s.
