  • Trevor

  • Sir Topham Hatt (mentioned)


  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine enjoyed living in the Vicarage Orchard. Edward came to see him every day, but sometimes Trevor didn't have enough work to do.
  • Trevor: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Trevor: And I do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Edward: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Edward.
  • Edward: Sir Topham Hatt has work for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Thomas today.
  • Trevor: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Trevor happily.
  • Trevor: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was on his way to the harbor with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbor wall firm and safe.
  • Edward: Hello, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: This is Trevor, a friend of mine. He's a traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Thomas eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Thomas: A what engine?
  • Trevor: A traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Explained Trevor.
  • Trevor: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbor, please? Sir Topham Hatt has a job for me.
  • Thomas: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Trevor's car to Thomas' train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Trevor: I'm glad Sir Topham Hatt needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Trevor.
  • Trevor: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards, even at harbors.
  • Thomas: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Trevor: I'm a traction engine. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbor, they found everything in confusion. Cars had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' Driver.
  • Driver: They are essential. Trevor, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Trevor: Just the sort of job I like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: Now you'll see, Thomas. I'll soon show you what traction engines can do.
  • George Carlin: Trevor was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Trevor: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Thomas brought Annie and Clarabel to visit him. Thomas was most impressed.
  • Thomas: Now I understand how useful a traction engine can be.
  • George Carlin: The coaches were full of children. Trevor gave them rides to all the harbor. He liked this best of all.
  • Annie: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Annie.
  • Clarabel: He reminds me of Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Added Clarabel. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Trevor to go. Thomas pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Trevor's eye. Thomas pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Trevor happy.
  • Thomas: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Thomas: The Vicar will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may need you again at the harbor someday.
  • Trevor: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Trevor. That evening, Trevor stood remembering his new friend Thomas, the harbor, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.
