"You see, I'm not small, I'm middle-sized!"
— Percy upon seeing Little Barford, The Cloud Factory!


Little Barford
  • Class: Kerr Stuart Tattoo
  • Designer: Kerr, Stuart & Co.
  • Builder: California Works
  • Built: 1920
  • Configuration: 0-4-2ST

Little Barford is a narrow gauge saddle tank engine who works on a private line at the Sodor Power Station.


Gordon and Percy met Little Barford when an urgent load of coal had to be delivered to the power station. However, Percy was still upset with Gordon, because he had teased him earlier that day and called him small. When the two engines saw Little Barford at the Power Station, Percy reassured Gordon that he in-fact was not small but rather medium-sized. Not much else is known about Little Barford.


Little Barford is based on the Talyllyn Railway's Edward Thomas, a Kerr Stuart Tattoo class 0-4-2ST that originally worked on the Corris Railway. Peter Sam is another member of this class.

However, Little Barford's name comes from an industrial 0-4-0 steam locomotive, who formerly worked at the Little Barford Power Station. It now operates on the Mid Norfolk Railway and still remains in working order.


Little Barford is painted purple with yellow lining. He has a red nameplate with black lettering on either side of his tanks. His cylinders are also painted white and with red lining.
