- "Well, we think you look like a big green caterpillar with red stripes!"
- ―Fred Pelhay, Pummeling Percy
Fred Pelhay, also known as Fred, is an orange coal truck.
Fred, along with the rest of the trucks can be troublesome and disrespectful to the other engines. Once he teased Percy and said he was trying to be his "image consultant", while he was overworked.
- Season 1: Dodge (remastered version only)
- Season 2: Pummeling Percy
- Season 3: Perhaps He's Got a Corset (cameo), Logan Leaves his Mark, Percy and Asbestos
Fred was seen since Season 1 as a generic truck, but more than one model of him was used as part of freight trains.
- EE93 has at least three or four models of Fred, one of them having its face glued on backwards after it had fallen off.
