S.C. Ruffey, or Scruffey, is a troublesome ballast wagon.
S.C. Ruffey was the leader of the troublesome trucks. He annoyed Oliver when the Great Western engine fell into a turntable well. After being pulled apart by Oliver, S.C. Ruffey (who had been rebuilt) and the other trucks became fearful of him and became incredibly respectful of him.
S.C. Ruffey was seen on the Little Western Railway during The Little Western Extension Project. He was most likely providing ballast for the new rails.

S.C. Ruffey has cameoed many times throughout the series as a generic freight car. This is a list of the times he has appeared as himself specifically.
