“Thank you, Thomas. Now we all have a new home!”
―The Animal Sanctuary Coach to Thomas, A New Home

The Animal Sanctuary Coach was once used for the express, until he/she was put on a siding and neglected for several years.

Years on, Thomas soon saw the rundown coach. As the animal shelter was running out of room, Thomas asked for the coach to be overhauled and renovated to be used as an animal home.

Technical Details


The Animal Sanctuary Coach is based on the LMS Suburban Coach. Annie and Clarabel were also based on this rolling stock in the Railway Series.


The Animal Sanctuary Coach is painted brown orange with a grey rooftop.
