These coaches are four-wheeled coaches which were seen on the Skarloey Railway and the Mid Sodor Railway in the television series.

Bio

They are the most commonly used coaches and have endured many accidents and adventures; such as leaving the Refreshment Lady behind, derailing several times, stopping at wrong places, being stuck in tunnels and having a full train of passengers on a stormy day.

The coaches are very fond of Peter Sam, and take a dislike to Sir Handel because he insulted them by calling them Cattle Trucks.

Livery

These coaches are painted blue with cream windows.

Appearances

They first appeared in the fourth season and last appeared in the tenth season. In the fourth season, the coaches had faces. After this the coaches were faceless.

Basis

The blue narrow gauge coaches are based on the Talyllyn Railway's No. 4 coach.

These coaches are four-wheeled coaches which were seen on the Skarloey Railway and the Mid Sodor Railway in the television series.

Bio

Since Sir Handel insulted the coaches, they do not trust him, even when he tries his best to be kind towards them. They are considered to be awkward and rude. They bumped Sir Handel off the rails when he had to stop suddenly to avoid running over a flock of sheep. Skarloey scolded the coaches severely and had to pull Sir Handel's train instead.

Peter Sam found a dilapidated red coach and it was later restored into a mobile tea room. Later, Rusty took the Sodor Brass Band around on a tour of the Skarloey Railway using one of these coaches. On Mrs. Percival's birthday, Mr. Percival arranged for Sir Handel to take them to Culdee Fell Hill for a picnic, using one of these coaches.

Livery

These coaches are painted red with yellow stripes.

Appearances

They first appeared in the fourth season and last appeared in the eleventh season. In the fourth season, the coaches had faces. After this the coaches were faceless.

Basis

The red narrow gauge coaches are based on the Talyllyn Railway's No. 1-3 coaches.

These coaches are four-wheeled coaches with open sides, which were seen on the Skarloey Railway and the Mid Sodor Railway in the television series.

Bio

These open air coaches are mainly used on sunny days for tourist trains and excursions. They were a part of Duke's Picnic Train on the Mid Sodor Railway. Rheneas pulled one of these coaches during a school excursion.

Once, Mighty Mac accidentally derailed one of them and pushed it into a mountain. This caused a rock slide and the passengers had to help lever the coach back onto the rails. Duncan and Peter Sam took the Percival Twins for a train ride on their birthday using one of these coaches.

Livery

They are painted green with cream windows. A blue version of this type of coach can be seen in the My Thomas Story Library book, Mighty Mac.

Appearances

They first appeared in the fourth season and last appeared in the twelfth season. In the fourth season, the coaches had faces. After this the coaches were faceless.

Trivia

  • The wind-up models are repainted from Annie and Clarabel's models.
  • The coaches resemble Ada, Jane and Mabel from the Railway Series, but with added roofs.
  • Whenever these coaches had faces, their ends were entirely cream-coloured. However, if they did not have faces, the green stripe on their sides was continued onto their ends.
