Sir Topham Hatt's car
SirTophamHatt'scar

Sir Topham Hatt uses his car to go to places when the engines are busy or to see what the engines are doing. It once caused trouble when he drove it into a pothole, but he thinks it is very reliable and would not want to get to work in any other vehicle.

Despite its usual blue colour, the car has taken on many forms throughout the years. It was blue in the Railway Series, but consisted of two different models in the television series. In jigsaws and other merchandise, the car is yellow, except for one where it is red. The plausible explanation is that the Fat Controller has more than one car.

In all cases, his car is presented as a typical vehicle of the 1940s. It is either loosely based on a Jowett Javelin or a Rover.

Since the introduction of Winston, the car has been seen less often.

Livery

The car is painted "Hatt blue".
