There are many barges that reside on Sodor.
Bob and Steve
|This article is about 'the barges'. You may be looking for 'the driver'.|
Bob and Steve are two barges that are used at Knapford Harbour. They are used for hauling various kinds of cargo, like hay, China clay, crates of treacle, stone or coal. Diesel 10 once plunged into one of these barges hauling sludge, after falling off the Big Dipper in pursuit of Thomas and Lady.
Bob and Steve's hulls are painted black and their decks are painted red. Their names are painted on their fronts in white.
- Thomas and the Magic Railroad (one only)
- The name "Steve" may be a reference to assistant director and model supervisor, Stephen "Steve" Asquith. Whereas the name "Bob" could either be a reference to producer, Robert "Bob" D. Cardona, or art director, Robert "Bob" Gauld-Galliers.
- Since the third season, Bob and Steve's names are not painted on them.
The jetty is a railway barge used for transferring rail-based transport such as trucks across the Callan Pond. It is old, weathered and rotted and has not been used for a long time, a railway line is now build around it. Thomas once crashed into it, causing the jetty to send him straight to the other side.
The Queen of Sodor
The Queen of Sodor is a leaky old barge and is the biggest barge on Sodor.
