— Thomas, Horrid Lorry, fifth season


HorridLorry
The Horrid Lorries
  • Registration numbers: LOR 1, LOR 2,and LOR 3

The Horrid Lorries, individually referred to as Lorry 1, Lorry 2, and Lorry 3, are three small lorries.

Bio

When Percy was late one day, Cranky suggested that a lorry could do his work. True to his word, three red, incredibly rude lorries arrived the next day. They called Percy a "little green goblin on wheels", insulted Thomas and James, and told Toby to "toodle off to a museum". Of course, all three got their comeuppance in due course: One fell off a mountainside, one broke down after being overloaded with flour, and one reversed into the sea. They were sent away, but not before being nicknamed "Smashed", "Broken", and "Sunk" by Thomas.

Persona

The lorries are mean and rude to the engines. They like to tease them and get them into trouble.

Basis

The lorries are based on AEC Hanson lorries.

Livery

The Horrid Lorries are painted red. They sometimes have grey hoods over their beds.

Appearances

Television series

Their models (faceless and repainted) made several cameos until Hero of the Rails when the show converted to CGI.

The Horrid Lorries also appears in the magazine stories, A Colourful Christmas, A Special Story about Steam, Bumpers and Buffers, Coal Weather, Feeding Time, Fun With Friends, Good Games, Bad Sport!, Lorry Loads, Road Ride, Road Train, Slow Down, Bertie!, Sodor Goes Pop, The Best Bridge, and The Mountain Railway.

Trivia

  • Faceless Horrid Lorry models are on display at Drayton Manor.
  • After their episode, the lorry models had their faces and registration plates removed and were used as props.
  • A fourth Horrid Lorry, painted yellow, is seen at the crossing in the book, Thomas and Toby. A green Horrid Lorry can also be found on an official 65th anniversary board game.
  • The official website, as well as various magazine articles and file facts, state that the Lorries were "especially built to work at Sodor Construction Company". Thus suggesting that they may have be originally intended to be apart of the Pack.
  • A similar looking lorry appeared in the magazine story, The Carnival. However, this Lorry was introduced four months before the fifth season episode, Horrid Lorry, in which the Horrid Lorries made their début appearances. The Horrid Lorries may have been based off that character.
