"They call me Old Slow Coach and told me I wasn't useful any more. Now only the mice ride in me!"
— Old Slow Coach, Thomas, Percy and Old Slowcoach, fifth season


Old Slow Coach
  • Class: Falmouth Coupe TRI brake coach
  • Builder: GWR Swindon Works
  • Built: 1893

Old Slow Coach, or simply known as Coach, is a GWR Victorian luxury coach.


Old Slow Coach was a luxurious coach when she was first brought to the Island of Sodor, but was eventually replaced by modern rolling stock. She was sent to the scrap yards, and was long due for the scrapheap when Thomas and Percy met her. The two tank engines vowed to find a way to save her, and their chance came sooner than expected when the workmen's hut was destroyed by a fire. Thomas and Percy suggested that Old Slow Coach could house the workmen while a new hut was being made. Old Slow Coach was restored and taken to the beach to be used as the hut for the workmen.

After the workmen's hut was rebuilt, Old Slow Coach was brought back on the rails to be used as a coach again. When Percy was looking for something "old" for Mrs. Kyndley's daughter's good luck package at her wedding, she became the "old" item.


Old Slow Coach is a Falmouth Coupe TRI brake coach, built in 1893 for the Great Western Railway.


Old Slow Coach is painted in the Great Western Railway's chocolate and cream livery.
