"She's as precious as gold."
— Burnett Stone describing Lady, Thomas and the Magic Railroad

  • Configuration: 0-4-0

Lady is a Victorian-style steam engine who runs the Magic Railroad and is owned and guarded by Burnett Stone.


Lady was chased and wrecked by Diesel 10 long ago and was brought to safety by Burnett Stone. She was brought back to life with the help of Burnett's granddaughter Lily after being stored at Muffle Mountain for years, and helped Thomas defeat Diesel 10.

Later in Calling All Engines!, she and Rusty appeared in a dream to Thomas. Lady told Thomas how to resolve the problems Sodor was facing.


Lady does not seem to be based on any real locomotive prototype, but it has been suggested that she bears some resemblance to a K&SER Northiam with the rear cab cut off and an enlarged chimney. She is said to be based on "Lively Polly", owned by the Liverpool Overhead Railway Company. Lady may also be partially based on a LSWR 0-4-0 locomotive. She also bears a slight resemblance to Captain Baxter. She does have some resemblance to a GWR 101 Class.


Lady is painted red-purple with gold head lamps on the front footplate, tail lamp, gold buffers, smokebox and funnel top, dome and whistles, side rods, lining and her name on each side in gold. She is also painted a very dark purple on her cab roof, lower funnel section and her footplate.
