Members and Residents




  • The Search and Rescue Centre is made from Jobi Wood.
  • It is located near the Sodor opening of the Misty Island Tunnel.
  • One of the signs on the Search and Rescue Centre building depicts an ambulance, a fire engine, the company logo and Rocky. The road vehicles in the sign are based on those used in the Model Series.
  • In Wild Water Rescue, the team celebrated its one-thousandth rescue.
  • Captain is the first member of the team introduced to not have originally appeared in model form.
  • Harold is the only member of the Search and Rescue team who was created by the Rev. W. Awdry.
  • In the Nitrogen Studios animated episodes, the Center has different engines assigned to it from time to time, known engines including Thomas, Edward, James, and Toby. Thomas, Edward and Emily (during the Big World! Big Adventures! rebrand) still appear to be the go-to engines for emergencies aside from the main rescue vehicles at the center.
