Nancy and Violet

Nancy and Violet were two cargo ships featured on the Reverend W. Awdry's layout of Tidmouth-Knapford.


Nancy and Violet regularly delivered coal and machinery to Tidmouth Harbour for the North Western Railway. They also brought fish, which was loaded onto The Flying Kipper.


  • Nancy and Violet were built by Wilbert Awdry's brother, George Awdry.
  • They never appeared in any of the Railway Series stories, but were in Awdry's model railway scrapbook, as part of the Awdry Study at Narrow Gauge Railway Museum in Tywyn.
