"Other engines came and went, but Duke out lasted them all."
The Author, Granpuff, Duke the Lost Engine

They are all narrow-gauge engines who worked on the Mid Sodor Railway. Their fates were left unknown when their railway went bankrupt and closed. It is presumed they were subsequently sold for scrap.

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. 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 at the Mid Sodor Railway and were depicted as the other engines working alongside Duke, Falcon and Stuart.

The Reverend W. Awdry's original layout of Mid Sodor, featured two other engines named John and Jennings. John was built from a Peco James kit, and Jennings was built from another Peco James kit which was modified into an 0-4-0.

Two unidentified engines remained in storage at the Cadeby Light Railway. One was was painted burgundy with a brass dome, and the other resembled Rheneas. This may possibly mean that Jennings might be named after the works which built Skarloey, Rheneas and Captain Baxter called Fletcher, Jennings, and Co..

While, Awdry's model of Rheneas is currently on display at the Talyllyn Railway museum, it currently unknown whether or not the engines could have been either John, Jennings, Rheneas or completely different engines.
