Gunpowder Wagons

Gunpowder Wagons, as their name suggests, transport gunpowder. Because gunpowder is so dangerous, engines must take the most careful way when shunting them, and they are usually put in the middle of trains for safety.

In the television series, these wagons can be seen on the Mid Sodor Railway, the Skarloey Railway, and at the Blue Mountain Quarry.


In the model era, the gunpowder wagons were based on the "Curtis's & Harvey" 152 gunpowder wagon used on the Ffestiniog Railway. In the CGI Series, the gunpowder wagons have reduced in size, and are based on 2 foot gauge gunpowder van used to carry gunpowder from Porthmadog to the Blaenau Ffestiniog quarries on the Ffestiniog Railway.


Gunpowder wagons are painted black with "D. FUSIT" on the side in white and "GUNPOWDER" underneath in red. In the CGI series, they are painted grey and dark green and have explosives hazard warnings on them.


  • The name "D. Fusit" is a play on words of "De-Fuse It".
  • The ERTL packaging refers to "D. Fusit" as a male character and implies that he is sentient.
