Slate Trucks are the Skarloey Railway's main type of truck. Besides carrying slate, they have been known to carry broken branches, cows, and sheep. They dislike Sir Handel because he often bumps them. Peter Sam, on the other hand, never bumps the trucks unless they misbehave.

Bio

Once, the slate trucks mistook Peter Sam for Sir Handel, and decided to play a trick on him. At the slate mine, they snapped the chain attached to the winch and ran into him, cracking his funnel and denting his boiler.

In the fifth season, some empty slate trucks jammed the winch on the incline and ran down the slope into the ravine, causing an avalanche which buried Skarloey. Another time, they broke away from Peter Sam's train, and plummeted into the ravine at the old iron bridge.

In the sixth season, Rusty warned Duncan to be careful with the trucks after bumping them. Unfortunately for Duncan, he got his comeuppance when he jammed the incline winch and crashed into a muddy swamp.

In more recent seasons, the slate trucks don't have faces. From Blue Mountain Mystery onwards, many faceless slate trucks are seen scattered around the Blue Mountain Quarry.

Appearances

The slate trucks have appeared in every season since the fourth, with the exception of the eighth, thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth seasons.
