The Pump Trolley (handcar or pump car in the United States) is a railway vehicle with a pivoting arm mounted on it, which is pushed down and pulled up for propulsion by one or two people standing on either end.

In its first appearance, Old Bailey took the Pump Trolley to get around his old line, watching for broken signals or collapsed viaducts. He once used it to alert to Henry, after the big green engine accidentally pushed some trucks into a ravine.

In the CGI Series, it is used by the workmen for maintenance work. Sir Topham Hatt and his helpers would occasionally use the Pump Trolley as a private mode of transportation when the engines were not available, most notably around Misty Island.

An old disused pump trolley was left sitting at Sir Robert Norramby's estate. It was later used by a pair of thieves in an attempt to steal King Godred's crown.




All of the merchandise is under the name "Hand Car".
