"Many engines came and went, but Duke outlasted them all."
— The author, Granpuff, Duke the Lost Engine

Several other engines worked alongside Duke, Stuart, Falcon and Stanley on the former Mid Sodor Railway. Their fates were left unknown when their railway went bankrupt and closed, it is presumed they were sold or scrapped.

These engines never appeared in any of The Railway Series stories, but appeared on the Reverend W. Awdry's model layouts of the Mid Sodor Railway. Though their existence was implied, they were never mentioned by name. Some of these engines were on display at the Reverend Teddy Boston's Cadeby Light Railway, before the railway finally closed in 2005.

In the television series, Skarloey, Rheneas, and Duncan made various cameo appearances on the Mid Sodor Railway though they were depicted as the other engines working alongside Duke, Falcon, Stuart and Smudger.

There were two engines named Albert on Awdry's layout.


The first version, was built from a Minitrains Baldwin modified into an 0-6-0. The second version was based on a Hughes Falcon locomotive in original Corris Railway condition, like Falcon.


The newer version of Albert was painted sky blue with a black running board, and brass fittings. The original version's livery is unknown.
