This article is about 'standard lorries'. You may be looking for Blue Mountain Quarry lorries.

There are several cargo lorries seen around Sodor.

Some of them are soft-sided lorries, which have covered bed sides and can transport items that cannot be exposed to the outside.

The other ones are pickup lorries, which have open bed sides and can transport lots of different items. They have been known to transport dairy products from the farms and stone from the quarries. Once, two of them were transporting water tanks that were attached to a hose to wash the engines.

Technical Details


The cargo lorries are based on designs by Austin, Dodge and Leyland from the 1940s and 1950s.


The cargo lorries are painted in different liveries, such as blue, red, green, yellow and grey. A blue lorry that is owned by the Sodor China Clay Company, has the initials "SCC" painted on its sides in green.
