Cora is a tool van who was built by Falcon Works in 1885 for the Mid Sodor Railway. While Skarloey was away in 1952, she was saved and restored at the Skarloey Railway and used as a guard's van when Beatrice wasn't available. With the arrival of Millicent in 1955, she was returned to her original use as a tool van.
Cora worked in the Mid Sodor Railway before being saved and restored at the Skarloey Railway. For a time, she was used as a guard's van when Beatrice wasn't available.
When Skarloey returned from being mended, he took Cora to rescue Duncan after he got stuck in Rheneas Tunnel for doing "Rock n Roll". When Skarloey took Duncan home, Cora was left in a siding for the workmen to inspect the tunnel.
Duncan later took Cora to help repair one of Skarloey's coaches after it derailed.
Cora is painted periwinkle blue.
