Smudger was a narrow-gauge tank engine.
According to Duke, Smudger was a show-off who rode roughly and often came off the rails. Duke tried to warn him to be careful, but Smudger never listened to his advice. He was finally punished by being turned into a generator and being put behind the engine shed.
No information was given about his fate once the Mid Sodor Railway closed, so it must be assumed that he has either remained there, was shipped to a different place, or was scrapped.
Smudger was a complete show-off and often derailed, but refused to listen to advice. Duke warned him to be careful, but he took no notice until he was put in his place by being turned into a generator.
Smudger is a Fletcher Jennings 0-4-0, recycled from Rheneas's model.
Smudger was painted dark green with black lining. His nameplate and number are both gold. As he shared the same model as Rheneas, the inside of his cab is red. Despite being numbered on television, no toy or artwork has shown him with his number.
In the fourth season episode, Gallant Old Engine, Rheneas wore one of Smudger's face masks.
