Thomas & Friends
James was originally given the passenger run, but was replaced by Emily when she was late with the flour train once too often. At first, the engines were worried about the route, as it was rumoured that the loch was occupied by a monster and that boulders would bash engines' buffers. When Emily took the Black Loch run, however, she learned that the monster was actually a family of seals, so the engines now enjoy taking this route.
- The Black Loch monster is based on the legendary Loch Ness monster (alternatively known as ‘Nessie’).
- The location was originally known as Castle Loch.
- The Black Loch Folly is now on display at Drayton Manor Theme Park.
