- "Where's my coach?"
"Cooch? What cooch?"
"My special coach, that Gordon brings for me, it's gone. I must find it!"
- — Thomas and Douglas, The Twin Engines
|Thomas' special coach|
After arriving at Tidmouth with the express, Gordon shunts a coach from the train into a siding for passengers wanting to travel to destinations on Thomas' Branch Line. Thomas, Annie and Clarabel then come from Knapford Junction to collect it.
One time Douglas forgot to shunt this coach, causing a heap of delay for the passengers.
It has only appeared in one Railway Series volume The Twin Engines and was going to make an appearance in the cancelled second season episode, The Missing Coach.
In the Railway Series it is painted red and white. In the television series, it would have been painted in the Express Coaches green and custard livery.
