Gina is a kind Italian tank engine who participated in the Shunting Challenge at The Great Railway Show.


Gina, along with the other international engines, accidentally arrived on Sodor when the ferry they were traveling on stopped at Sodor instead of the Mainland. After the engines realised their mistake, Gina ordered the engines back onto the ship. She was also the first to notice that one of the international engines, Ashima, was missing from the ship.

Gina competed in the Shunting Challenge alongside Ivan, Raul, Thomas and Ashima. During the competition, her flatbeds were derailed by Vinnie when he was chasing Philip through the yard.

After the Great Railway Show ended, Gina left the Mainland and returned to Italy.


Sweet and stylish, Gina can match the boys pound for pound when it comes to shunting freight in the yard.


Gina is based on the Ferrovie Nord Milano 200 0-4-0T. This engines were ordered by the Società Ferrovie Del Ticino (SFT) to the Belgian factory Couillet, for working on the lines Como-Varese-Laveno and Saronno-Malnate. The society built seven engines, numbered from 200 to 206. In 1888, the two lines were acquired by the Ferrovie Nord Milano, and the engines become part of the railway, with the numbers changed from 201 to 207 (in 1942 was changed again from 200-01 to 200-07). They were used for local service and slowly slowly downgraded to poor jobs with the arrive of more powerful engines and, from the 1920s, the electrifying of the lines. In the middle of the 1930s were used only for shunting, especially at the Milano Cadorna station, and finally withdrawn in the 1960s, after people's protests. In 1974 the engine 200-05 was restored and used for historical trains and now is the second oldest operating engine in Europe. Another engine, numbered 200-02 has been transformed in a monument at Saronno, but it is actually 200-04.


Gina's livery comes from her basis. She is painted green with a black boiler, gold lining, and red wheels. She has her name written in white lettering on her nameplates.
