Hector (the name stands for "Heavily Engineered Coal Truck On Rails") is a coal hopper who is good friends with Thomas and James.

Bio

When Bill and Ben first brought Hector to the yard, he was being troublesome and kept banging into the twins. Hector, at first, was aggressive. He roared angrily at the engines to "KEEP AWAY!", giving Thomas a fright and scaring Rosie away. Thomas, determined to shunt him and having enough of the truck's behavior, accidentally pushed him off the line, and after being helped back onto the rails, Hector revealed he was intimidating so he wouldn't have to carry coal, being scared of doing so. Thomas showed him it was actually quite fun.

Later on, Hector helped James get through a snowstorm from Brendam Docks to Great Waterton after James ignored his previous advice and some of the trucks got stuck in a snowdrift.

Persona

Hector used to be mean and aggressive to hide his fear of being filled with coal. Thanks to Thomas, he learned that there was no need to be scared and is now friendly to the engines.

Basis

Hector is based on an ICI Hopper Wagon.

Livery

Hector is painted black with "HECTOR" painted on both sides in white.
