“The engines on the Mainland say you're even more fun than me!”
―Charlie to Thomas, Play Time, thirteenth season

The Mainland Engines are locomotives from the Other Railway who told Charlie how much fun Thomas is. They are presumably friends of Charlie.

Many of the engines on the North Western Railway originate from various railways on the Mainland.
