Troublesome Trucks

Troublesome Trucks, or Freight Cars, are troublesome, rude and disrespectful towards the engines and people of Sodor. They are used for the transportation of goods on the railway.


The Troublesome Trucks have been on Sodor since day one and have always been extremely naughty. Edward is most likely the wisest engine when it comes to trucks, having worked in the Freight Yard for many years. Thomas, James and many, many other engines had trouble with the silly trucks since their early days on Sodor. Thomas thought he could handle them on his own, but they ended up pushing him down Gordon's Hill! Since then, he has been far more cautious when it comes to trucks, and Edward has taught him all he needs to know.

Percy thought he could trust the truckss, but they wound up pushing him into the sea!

The trucks pushed Oliver into the turntable well.

Oliver ripped their leader, S.C. Ruffey, to pieces, and since then they have behaved and viewed him with a fearful respect.

A particularly unpleasant group of trucks pushed Molly into the Wharf after Young Tucker damaged an important brake pipe, causing them to break away on Gordon's Hill.

Fred Pelhay and the other truckss teased Percy about being unbearably ugly, deeming him "a green caterpillar with red stripes", an insult Percy is all too familiar with!

There are many different types of trucks, including ballast trucks, vans and tankers.


Troublesome Trucks are about the most unpleasant rolling stock on the Island of Sodor! They're rude, cheeky and very mischievous. They love making fun of the engines and making life difficult for them, though on occasion they do show respect for some engines, like Oliver after his incident with S.C. Ruffey.
