There are several cargo lorries seen around Sodor.
Some of them are soft-sided lorries, which have covered bed sides and can carry items that cannot be exposed to the outside.
The other ones are pickup lorries, which have open bed sides and can carry lots of different items. They have been known to carry dairy products from the farms and stone from the quarries. Once, two of them were carrying water tanks that were attached to a hose to wash the engines.
The cargo lorries are based on designs by Austin, Dodge and Leyland from the 1940s and 1950s.
The cargo lorries are painted blue, red, green, yellow and grey.
