Madge is a snub-nosed lorry with a three-wheeled cab and a flatbed. She works alongside the Skarloey Railway.

Biography

Thomas & Friends

In Madge's first appearance, she had to take Duncan to the other side of the yards by road due to snow blocking the tracks. He teased her that she was a slow-poke because the journey was boring. So she decided to make it exciting by driving fast, skidding through the countryside. This ultimately led to them almost falling off the edge of a cliff. Luckily, they made it out safely.

Later, she had to deliver cleaning supplies for Skarloey and Rheneas when they were going to lead for the Engine Rally and Country Show.

She was also the first character that Thomas told about his discovery of Great Waterton.

Season 5

When Madge was feeling down after an extremely busy day in which she transported Duncan, Freddie, Sir Handel, Ivo Hugh, Rheneas, and Peter Sam, Peter Sam and Colin decided to do something nice for her. Rheneas asked Madge to go to the Wharf. Upon getting there, Madge broke down. Luckily, the surprise Peter Sam had planned was for Madge to be taken by rail on a flatbed to the works[1].

Season 10

Like in the television series, Madge had to take Duncan to the other side of the yards by road due to snow blocking the tracks. He teased her that she was a slow-poke because the journey was boring. So she decided to make it exciting by driving fast, skidding through the countryside. This ultimately led to them almost falling off the edge of a cliff. Luckily, they made it out safely[2].

Personality

What Madge lacks in elegance, she makes up for in strength and personality. She acts as a motherly figure to the narrow gauge engines, but can be playful and loves a good joke.

Basis

Madge is based on a 1964 Scammell Scarab 6-ton tractor lorry. This type of lorry was very popular with British Railways. About 60 are preserved.

Livery

Madge is painted green along with her trailer and the bottom half of her cab, whilst the top half of her cab and her headlights are painted cream. Her outermost wheels have red hubcaps, while her central steering wheel has a black rim.

Trivia

  • Madge reuses and shares the same horn sound as Kelly.
  • Madge's front has been modified to accommodate her face.
