Forklifts can be found working at different places, especially at Brendam Docks and Vicarstown Dieselworks, where they carry crates and many other loads.

Once, a forklift working at Tidmouth Harbour accidentally spilled some crates of fish onto the rails, making the rails too slippery for James to move.

Technical Details


In the Railway Series, the first forklift, seen at Arlesdale Green, is painted yellow, while the second, seen at Tidmouth Harbour, is painted orange.

In the television series, they are most commonly seen in yellow. One has been seen at Wellsworth sporting a yellow livery with a lime green engine compartment.
