Lakesider III

Lakesider III is a paddle driven steam tugboat which lives in a harbour near the Skarloey Railway. Its body was recycled from O.J. off of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends' sister show, TUGS.

Its wheelhouse was replaced again with O.J's head, sans glasses in late 2012. After it was purchased by the Star Tugs Trust in early 2013, it was refitted with its original smokestack and glasses.


Lakesider III is based on the 1914 paddlewheel tugboat; The Eppleton Hall.
