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.


Lakesider III appeared in the fourth season episodes, A Bad Day for Sir Handel, Peter Sam and the Refreshment Lady, Rock 'n' Roll, Fish, and Special Attraction. It then appeared in stock footage in the seventh season episode, Bulgy Rides Again. Lakesider III also appeared in the magazine story, The Boatshow.

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.


  • Lakesider III's model appeared on display at the Battlefield Line on May 25th - 27th 2013 for its Vintage Toy Train Weekend.
