Smudger was a narrow-gauge tank engine, who worked on the Mid Sodor Railway. He was turned into a generator.

Bio

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's downfall was used for Duke to lecture Stuart and Falcon. In the magazines, when Duncan was being careless, Sir Handel and Peter Sam tried telling him the story of Smudger.

Persona

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.

Basis

Smudger is based of a Fletcher Jennings 0-4-0, recycled from Rheneas's model.

Livery

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 a rare image, Smudger's coal bunker is red.

Appearances

Television series

Due to a financial difficulty, Smudger's face was later used for Bertram in the fifth season.

Quotes

"Smudger," said Duke. "Was a show-off. He rode roughly and often came off the rails. I warned him to be careful, but he took no notice."
"Listen, Dukie" he snared. "Who worries about a few spills?"
"We do here! I said, but Smudger just laughed."
"Hahaha!"
"Until one day, Manger said he was going to make him useful at last. Smudger stopped laughing then!"
"W-w-why? What did he do?!"
"He turned him into a generator. He's still there behind our shed. He'll never move again."
