Toby had several brothers, all LNER J70 steam trams like him, with whom he worked in his younger days at the harbour in Yarmouth.
Toby is now old and his brothers were replaced by Drewry 0-6-0 diesel shunters. They were eventually withdrawn by 1955 and cut up for scrap, with Toby being the only member of their class left. He would later reminiscence about his brothers as seen in Toby's Seaside Holiday.
Toby's brothers are based on the GER C53 0-6-0T Wisbech steam tram (classed as J70 by the LNER).
Toby's brothers all had brown paint and black sideplates with "LNER" written on them in yellow.
