Gertrude and Millicent are two coaches rescued from the Mid Sodor Railway which the Skarloey Railway restored while Skarloey was being mended. They run on bogies, which led Sir Handel to consider 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.
