Refreshment Lady

The Refreshment Lady (1906-1986) worked at Lakeside (Skarloey in the Railway Series) where she owned a small cafe, called Neptune Refreshments, she later opened a very mobile shop in an old coach discovered by Rusty and Peter Sam.


The Refreshment Lady first appeared in Peter Sam and the Refreshment Lady. She was about to board the next train when Peter Sam rushed out so he could get there before Henry departed from Crovan's Gate. She was furious about this when they got there until she explained to Peter Sam that Henry's train was a guaranteed connection.

In the seventh season, she was trying to find the best location for her tea shop in the Skarloey Railway. Peter Sam took her to all the best places, but she couldn't make up her mind. After a storm blew over, Rusty was clearing debris and both he and Peter Sam discovered an old railway coach. Peter Sam decided to turn it into a mobile tea shop. The Refreshment Lady was so delighted about it that Sir Topham Hatt insisted that Peter Sam can take her around all the places she wanted to sell her refreshments.

She was also one of the important visitors Thomas was taking. Like what happened before, she was left behind at Black Loch.

She also sold refreshments at Wellsworth and Maron.

She may be good friends with the Hatt and Kyndley families, as in Lady Hatt's Birthday Party, she is one of the guests at Lady Hatt's party and in Happy Ever After, she is one of the guests attending Mrs. Kyndley's daughter's wedding.
