Old Bennett is an old troublesome truck, privately owned by Bennett & Co.



Once, the Fat Controller asked Thomas to work with Old Bennett at the canal. Thomas did not want to take him as he was known as one of the most troublesome trucks around, and had never been washed. He was being loaded with rubbish and scrap, but after a car was loaded inside him the crane operator accidentally knocked him into the water. In the end, he was rescued by a floating crane and was cleaned and given a repaint.

Technical Details


Old Bennett is based on an 8-plank fixed-end private owner open wagon. Fred Pelhay and Rickety also share the same basis.


Old Bennett is painted grey with black lettering reading "BENNETT & CO. LTD. WAGON OWNER & AGENT" written on both his sides.
