Thomas' Special Coach

"Where's my coach?"
"Cooch? What cooch?"
"My special coach, that Gordon brings for me, it's gone. I must find it!
— Thomas and Douglas, The Twin Engines



Thomas' Special Coach

After arriving at Tidmouth with the express, Gordon shunts a coach from the train into a siding for passengers wanting to travel to destinations on Thomas' Branch Line. Thomas, Annie and Clarabel then come from Knapford Junction to collect it.

One time, Douglas accidentally forgot to shunt this coach for Thomas. Instead he shunted the coach, full of passengers, into the carriage siding causing a heap of confusion and delay for the passengers.


Thomas' Special Coach is based on a British Railways Mark 1 Coach.


In the Railway Series, Thomas' special coach is painted burgundy red with cream coloured window surrounds. In the Television Series, it would have been painted in the express coaches green and custard livery.
