"My master would send us from farm to farm. We'd thresh corn, haul logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us. Oh yes, I like children."
— Trevor, Saved from Scrap, second season

Trevor is a traction engine that resides at the Wellsworth Vicarage Orchard.

Bio in the Railway Series

Trevor used to work on farms doing odd jobs like threshing corn and sawing timber, but his owner thought he was old-fashioned and sent him to the scrapyard. Edward luckily befriended him and convinced Rev. Charles Laxey to purchase him. Trevor now lives in the Wellsworth vicarage orchard, but is often borrowed by his driver Jem Cole to do odds jobs and to appear at various events such as steam fairs.

Bio in the television series

Edward and Trevor helped the vicar organize a garden party to raise money for a seaside trip for underprivileged children.


Trevor is very friendly and gets along well with the engines. He is also helpful and ready to give anybody advice. Trevor loves children in particular, especially giving them rides in his cart.


Trevor is based on a William Foster and Co. eight-ton traction engine built in the 1920s that was owned by the Reverend W. Awdry's friend the Reverend Teddy Boston.


In Edward the Blue Engine Trevor was painted black with gold boiler bands and chimney cap. In Thomas and the Twins he was painted green with bright yellow boiler bands.

Throughout the television series, Trevor is consistently painted dark green with red wheels and lining, a black smokebox and gold boiler bands.

"I'm Trevor, they're going to break me up next week."
"What a shame!"
said Edward.
"My driver says I only need some paint, Brasso and oil to be as good as new,"
Trevor went on sadly. "But it's no good. My master doesn't want me. I suppose its because I'm old fashioned."
Edward snorted indignantly. "People say I'm old fashioned. But I don't care. The Fat Controller says I'm a really useful engine."
"My driver says I'm useful too,"
replied Trevor. "I sometimes feel ill, but I don't give up like these tractors. I struggle on and finish the job. I've never broken down in my life!" he ended proudly.'"
