There are several four-wheeled brakevans used on the Skarloey Railway in the television series. They are often used for passenger trains, goods trains, and breakdown trains. They can also be found scattered around the yards.
The brakevans have ticket windows on both sides. The brakevans are used mainly to carry the guard and workmen, but on rare occasions when the coaches are full, the guard will allow passengers to travel in the brakevan.
In the Railway Series, all brakevans are painted blue. In the television series, the brakevans are painted blue, red, brown, grey, and dark green. However, from the sixteenth season onwards, only brown brakevans have been seen thus far.
The brakevans are based on the Talyllyn Railway's No. 5 guard's van, though they are somewhat shorter and have a door and lookout duckets on either side. Beatrice shares the same basis.
- In the Railway Series, Beatrice is the only known brakevan on the Skarloey Railway. However, Cora is occasionally used as a brakevan when Beatrice is not available.
Goods vans are mainly used for goods which need protection from the weather and can be found scattered around the yards.
In the Railway Series, all goods vans are painted blue. In the television series, they are commonly painted red.
- The Goods vans resemble Cora from the Railway Series. However, Cora has room for a guard to be housed.

The wagons, commonly referred to as Troublesome Trucks, resemble the coal wagons used by the North Western Railway. They are used for carrying coal, stone, flour, tools, and other materials. They take a disliking towards Sir Handel, like the slate trucks, and love to play tricks on an engine.
Quarry wagons resemble tall, wooden coal wagons are used exclusively at the Blue Mountain Quarry for transporting stone. They were introduced in Blue Mountain Mystery and have appeared from the sixteenth season onward.
They come in two shades of red and green, and have the Blue Mountain Quarry logo on both sides. In the TrackMaster range, they are painted blue with the Blue Mountain Quarry logo.
Flatbeds are used to carry large bulky loads, such as statues, organs, engines, vehicles etc.
In the ninth season, Rheneas had to deliver a dinosaur skeleton on a flatbed. In the eleventh season, Rusty accidentally demolished a flat truck loaded with bricks when Thomas was playing a trick on him.
Well wagons are used to carry tall loads, to make them more stable or lower by placing the load in a dipped space between the bogies.
A host wagon is a type of truck designed to carry narrow gauge trucks over larger gauge track. When it is carrying a guard's van, it can be used as the first or last wagon in the train.
One can briefly be seen being pulled by Thomas in Blue Mountain Mystery.
A real life example from the Padarn Railway, a slate carrying line, can be found at the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum at the Talyllyn Railway.
V Tipper Wagons

The V tipper wagons are probably the most used piece of rolling stock at the Blue Mountain Quarry. They are filled with slate which is then either tipped into a mill or transferred to standard gauge trucks.
- Wooden Railway (discontinued)
A few art transporter wagons can be seen around the Blue Mountain Quarry.
They were used at the start of World War II when the government requisitioned Manod Quarry in order to hide valuable pieces of art underground. It is unknown what their purpose at the Blue Mountain Quarry is.
