The Pump Trolley is a railway vehicle that consists of an arm that pivots on a base, which the passengers alternately push down and pull up to travel along the railway lines.

In its first appearance, Old Bailey took the Pump Trolley to get around his old line, watching for broken signals or collapsed viaducts. He once used it to alert to Henry, after the big green engine accidentally pushed some trucks into a ravine.

In the CGI Series, it is used by the Workmen for maintenance work. Sir Topham Hatt and his helpers would occasionally uses the Pump Trolley as a private mode of transportation when the engines were not available, most notably around Misty Island.

It appeared in the fifth, sixth, fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth and twenty-second seasons.

  • A real Pump Trolley was featured in 10 Years of Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends during the Day Out with Thomas event.
