Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia

The Car-Train is a trackless train which carries holidaymakers up and down the promenade in special carriages coupled to a road-going unit designed like a steam engine.

George does not like the Car-Train as he believes a car should be a car and engines should be scrapped. Once, when the Car-Train broke down, George reluctantly stepped in to haul the packed carriages along his newly-made seafront cycle lane. After a while, George enjoyed the job.

The Car-Train does not have a face and, rather oddly, its driver is dressed in a railway driver's uniform.

Technical Details


The Car-Train is painted orange with red lining. Its coaches are green and yellow with red lining with grey roofs.
