Buster is a simple steamroller who goes about his job with pride and content.

Bio

Buster likes to think of himself as the "world's fastest steamroller" and often dreams of winning races. This came true when he won a race against Max and Monty on the newly completed Sodor Rally Track. He later helped out when Miss Jenny found mole hills on the football field. Buster was also seen at the new school construction site.

Persona

Buster is a hard worker with heart and commitment in what he does and he is a good dreamer. He goes about his job with glee and pride knowing all is right with the world. What Buster lacks in imagination, he makes up for with heart, commitment, and hard work. He is liked by all the machines for his wonderful enthusiasm and kindness to help with everything.

Basis

Buster is based on an Aveling and Porter steamroller named Thistledown formerly owned by the Reverend Teddy Boston. George shares this basis.

Livery

Buster is painted brownish-red with yellow lining.
