These engines appeared at the Workshop where Percy use to live before arriving to Sodor. Sir Topham Hatt came to the Workshop to purchase a new tank engine, when the big engines went on strike and Thomas left to run his branch line. They were described as looking "big, little, happy, sad, and anxious". The large blue tank engine slightly resembles Thomas with extended side tanks, and the red engine appears similar to that of Gordon.
In addition to these, other engines were seen in the My Thomas Story Library, there are two other engines; one maroon with yellow stripes and the other blue with red lining. One vaguely resembles Percy, and the other Wilbert with blue wheels.

- In the Television series, the engines shown in the workshop were Edward, Henry, Gordon, James and Marklin coved in tarpaulins.
When Edward was sent to the works to be mended, he met three engines. The first engine, on Edward's right, is a silver electric multiple-unit. Several of these EMUs are still used on branch line services in Britain. The second engine, on Edward's left, is a tender engine and who strongly resembles a green version of Murdoch with green smoke deflectors. Murdoch's basis was the last make of steam engines to be built for British Railways, with the last one built in 1960. Finally, the last engine can be seen behind the green engine, however only his smoke-box and eyes are visible. Edward was quick to befriend these engines, due to there positive attitude towards him.
The Blue Engine
The Blue Engine was a tender engine, who was undergoing a overhaul similar to Henry's new design. He was first seen when Henry was being escorted to the Works by Percy. Henry was shocked to learn that the Works was full of ill engines.
This engine resembles a blue version Henry, with sightly different cylinders and paint work.
