“Goodbye Thomas, you must be tired, sorry I can't stop, we buses have to work you know.”
―Bertie to Thomas, Thomas and Bertie, first season




Besides Bertie, Bulgy and Algy, Sodor Roadways also owns a few other buses that were seen around the Island of Sodor, used to carry and transport passengers. The single-decker and double-decker buses are almost identical to Bertie and Bulgy respectively, except they are faceless.

In the Railway Series, various other buses have appeared in multiple colours such as green, red, and blue.

In Henry the Green Engine, a blue double-decker bus with a sign advertising the book Troublesome Engines can be seen in the background. In the magazines, two double-decker buses were introduced; the Special Bus Service and the Open-Topped Double-Decker Bus.

In the magazines, a green bus resembling a faceless Bertie, used for hospital services, appears in the story Important Passengers!. In the annual story, Bertie the Snow Bus a faceless blue bus resembling Algy appears with the headcode "401".

Basis

The single-decker buses are based on the AEC Regal T Class London Country Area buses, very much like Bertie.

The double-decker buses are based on AEC Bridgemaster buses, very much like Bulgy.

Livery

In the Railway Series, annual stories and magazine stories buses are painted in various colours such as blue, green and yellow. In the television series, buses are painted in the famous red bus livery used by London Transport, with silver hubcaps, like Bertie.
