Gertrude and Millicent are two bogie coaches who work on the Skarloey Railway. They formerly worked on the Mid Sodor Railway.


The Railway Series

The two coaches were rescued from the Mid Sodor Railway and restored while Skarloey was being mended. As they run on bogies, Sir Handel considers them the only "proper" coaches on the railway. Millicent has a small covered compartment for a guard where they can sell tickets, although Peter Sam does not like that as he believes that guards need vans, referring to this compartment as a "cupboard place".

Technical Details


Gertrude and Millicent are based on the Talyllyn Railway's ninth and tenth carriages, respectively.


Gertrude and Millicent are painted blue with cream window surrounds.
