"As I thought. Rotten wood, rusty frames. Maybe if we put you back together, you'll earn yourself a better name."

  • Class: 7-Plank Open Wagon
  • Gauge: 4' 8.5"

S.C. Ruffey  (affectionately known as "Scruffey") is a privately owned ballast truck and the ring-leader of the Troublesome Trucks.

Bio in the Railway Series

When Oliver returned from the Works after falling in a turntable well, S.C. Ruffey and the trucks sang rude songs about the event. Toad, worried by the lack of respect for the engines, consulted with Oliver and Duck and made a plan. Oliver then shunted S.C. Ruffey and his lieutenants and prepared to pull them. S.C. Ruffey rallied the trucks into holding back, but this only resulted in S.C. Ruffey being pulled apart. The Fat Controller attributed the incident to the wagon's poor condition, but told Oliver not to disclose the fact, saying it was "bad for discipline." After receiving his comeuppance, S.C. Ruffey's remains were scrapped.

After the incident Oliver became well-respected by the trucks, out of fear they will be pulled apart too. In addition, Donald and Douglas managed to transform goods traffic on both the Main Line and the Little Western.

Bio in the TV Series

S. C. Ruffey reprises his role from the Railway Series, however, after his incident with Oliver, he was rebuilt and wisely did not disclose the real reason for his damage.

The official website stated that S.C. Ruffey is an old and experienced ring-leader. It also stated that he still works in Oliver's yard, and that, prior his incident, he helped push Oliver down the turntable well.

Basis

S.C. Ruffey is based on a 7-plank open wagon.
