Jack is a friendly and enthusiastic front loader.

Bio

When Jack first arrived on Sodor he worked with the Pack to clear room for railway lines. Jack did well with Alfie - that is, until he tried to take some stone up a ledge but lost balance and rolled over. Jack learned his lesson, and redeemed himself by holding up a collapsing bridge until Thomas had passed over, at the cost of damaging his arms. Jack has since become part of the Pack.

Persona

Jack was like a toddler at first, who was still learning about the world and how to stay out of trouble. He is brave and won't take any hassle, as seen when he stood up to Max when the latter was bullying him and Alfie.

Basis

It is unclear what type of vehicle Jack is based on, although he does resemble a Nuffield tractor.

Livery

Jack is painted red with the top half of his cab painted cream. He has his number painted in white on his sides.

Trivia

  • In some promo sketches of the Pack, Jack is seen with a backhoe arm and bucket. According to an SiF interview with Chris Lloyd, the arm was built, but was too problematic as it was hard to store all of the radio gear inside the model. An interview with Phil Ferhle gives a very different reason: "...if a story required Jack to be digging (using his back-hoe) and interacting with another character working at the same time, his face would be facing away from the action. For story purposes, it was important to feature the faces as much as possible; thus, the back-hoe was removed."
  • In the Japanese dub, Jack is voiced by Naomi Shindō.
