There are two types of branch line coaches on the North Western Railway.

Orange Coaches

"You're lazy and slack! You're lazy and slack!"
— Orange Coaches, Tenders and Turntables, first season

Orange Coaches

There were a number of orange four-wheeled coaches used on secondary and branch line services. James once bumped the coaches so hard, that a passengers' bootlace had to be obtained to mend the brake pipe.

As of the third season, Annie and Clarabel appear to be the only coaches of this kind left. However, two orange coaches appear in an eighth season learning segment.


In the Railway Series, these coaches are bogie coaches. In the television series, they are LBSCR four-wheel coaches.



Red Coaches

"You can use ordinary coaches instead!"
— Sir Topham Hatt to Thomas, Thomas Saves the Day, eighth season

Red Coaches

There were a number of red four-wheeled coaches used on secondary and branch line services, but are also used by the smaller engines on the Main Line. The red coaches are usually pulled by Thomas, James, Stanley, and Duck and Oliver on The Little Western in the television series. Thomas once dereailed with these coaches and crashed into a bush.

The Red Coaches are often seen scattered around the yard with trucks. Rarely, they are accompanied by a Brakevan or Flatbed.


The red coaches are based on LBSCR Stroudley four-wheel coaches.
