The Ballast Spreader - an unusual-looking machine, replaces ballast on the North Western Railway. He is painted yellow and carries the words "SODOR CHAIN LOAD UNDERCUT" on his side. Unusually, he appears to be wearing glasses in the illustration. In Wooden Railway range, the Ballast Spreader is known as the "Sodor Railway Repair Train". However, this title is technically inaccurate, as he belongs to the North Western Railway and is not strictly used for repair.
