Shunters are responsible for coupling and uncoupling engines from trains using a long pole with a hook on the end called a shunter's pole. When there is no shunter around, a fireman or a workman usually does the job. They have appeared more regularly since the twelfth season.



  • Shunters dress identically to the workmen; a blue suit with overalls, and with either a flat cap or a hard hat.
