Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia

Happy Hook is a stationary, non-sentient crane based at the Vicarstown Dieselworks.


Thomas & Friends

Happy Hook was old and had not been repaired for a long time; as a result, Dart complained about the crane frequently. Kevin was then brought to the Dieselworks to do the jobs that Happy Hook could not, and enjoyed playing with it. When the Dieselworks was rebuilt, Happy Hook was restored.

When it was Christmas time, Diesel 10 decorated Happy Hook with red ribbons, Christmas lights and mistletoe. He later removed these decorations and gave them back to the Steam Team.

When Diesel wanted to compete in The Great Railway Show, Happy Hook assisted in his plan to be chosen by putting crates on top of Den, Dart and Paxton. It later dropped a crate on Diesel after Dart was bashed into its controls.

Happy Hook later carried Daisy when Diesel bumped into her so that the engineers and workmen could find out what was wrong with her.
