These Scrap Engines appeared in the second illustration of Stepney the "Bluebell" Engine. All four had lost their paint and were waiting in a siding to be scrapped.

The engine on the left seems to be a GWR 2251 class 0-6-0 tender engine. The engine on the right seems to be an LNWR 1185 class 0-8-2 tank engine with his/her trailing wheels, bunker and back end of his/her cab already cut off. The engine behind the engine on the right, on the same track, seems to be another tank engine with his/her smokebox door and his/her side tanks already removed. The fourth engine, on the far right, appears to be another tank engine.


Railway Series

Sudrian Engines

The Scrap Engines

These engines are seen around scrapyards on the Island, and they are mostly based off of models of existing characters. These included Thomas, Gordon, Donald and/or Douglas and City of Truro.

The Märklin Engine is one of these scrapped engines.

Two engines appear in a scrapyard in the magazine story Saved Again; a silver engine, and a yellow tender engine with its wheels, tender, and funnel removed. The yellow engine closely resembles James' class.

  • According to crew member Christopher Noulton, the Gordon model used in the pilot was rebuilt by him for the second season for use as a stand-by model. It was later cut up and used as scrap set dressing.


Old Shed Engine

This engine was seen in a old shed near the station that is used for storage. It's unknown if the engine is alive or not.

It's unknown what basis the engine is based after.

The Scrap Engine

The Scrap Engine appeared in Thomas' dream after he visited the scrapyard one day. In the dream, the scrap engine rattled down the main line blowing his wonky whistle.

A scrap engine just like the one in Thomas' dream was later put together from old parts at the scrapyard by a sculptor. It was then put into a modern art exhibition.
