“"But they're tru...I mean they're not like ours," he finished lamely.”
―Duck remarking on the Arlesdale Coaches

There are a number of bogie passenger carriages for tourist traffic on the Arlesdale Railway. The original coaches, a mixture of open and open-sided types, were obtained from the same railway in England as the locomotives.

The uncovered bogie coaches are used for summer and covered for winter. Others are closed saloon carriages built at Arlesburgh Works. Duck mistook them for trucks at first, because of their appearance.

Technical Details


The Arlesdale Railway coaches are based on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway's locally-built open bogie coaches first made in 1928.


The Arlesdale Railway coaches are painted pure pink.



  • In "Jock the New Engine" and the television series, the coaches do not have faces.
