"Bulstrode is a disagreeable barge. He never stops complaining!"
— Percy's driver, Special Attraction, fourth season

Bulstrode

Bulstrode is a highly disagreeable barge.

Bio

Bulstrode was used to carry cargo like coal and stone, but always complained about not being loaded fast enough. This annoyed the trucks, but one day Bulstrode ended up getting what he deserved when Percy accidentally pushed trucks off the quay and into his hull. He was then towed to a Beach, where he was turned into a children's playground. He remains there today, most likely still grumbling.

Persona

Bulstrode is bad-tempered and never stops complaining.

Basis

Bulstrode is based on a 1920s self-propelled coastal barge.

Livery

Bulstrode is painted cream, black, and red. In the "My First Thomas" range he is painted blue, red and yellow.

Appearances

Railway Series

Television series

He also cameoed in fifth, sixth, and seventh season songs.

His faceless model made numerous appearances at the Fishing Village in following seasons. His surprised face was also used on some trucks in the eighth and tenth seasons.

Bulstrode may return in the CGI Series, as a Wooden Railway model features him with a CGI-style face and he appeared in a CGI style play set. He also appeared in The Secret of the Mine, which is a book based on King of the Railway.

Magazine stories

Bulstrode also appeared in the magazine stories, Boat Afloat, Bulstrode the Engine, Gone Fishing, and Pirate Passengers.

Trivia

  • Bulstrode's appearance in the television series is rather different from his Railway Series appearance: in the Railway Series he has two hulls and his face is the same colour as his cab, while in the television series he only has one hull and the standard grey face.
  • Bulstrode is the only non-human character created by Christopher Awdry to be introduced into the TV series.
  • One of Bulstrode's models has been put on display at Drayton Manor on a beach near Bluff's Cove.
