Listen, Dukie. Who worries about a few spills?

Smudger was a narrow gauge tank engine who worked on the Mid Sodor Railway. He was later turned into a generator.


According to Duke, Smudger was a show-off who rode roughly and often came off the rails. Duke tried to warn him to be careful, but Smudger refused to listen to his advice. He was finally punished by being turned into a generator and being put behind the engine shed.

Smudger's downfall was used for Duke to lecture Stuart and Falcon.

Later, Mr. Percival bought Smudger and had him sent to be mended.

Edward later brought Smudger to the Skarloey Railway when he was finished being repaired. Smudger then ended up causing trouble for Duke, Peter Sam, Sir Handel, and Luke at Blue Mountain Quarry


Smudger was a complete show-off and often derailed, but refused to listen to advice. Duke warned him to be careful, but he took no notice until he was put in his place by being turned into a generator.


Smudger is based off of the Talyllyn Railway's Dolgoch, a Fletcher Jennings Class Bb 0-4-0WT. Rheneas and Rusty's Ghost Engine (firefly formation) share the same basis.


Smudger was painted dark green with black lining. He had black and brass name and number plates on the sides of his boiler and coal bunkers respectively. Promotional artwork and merchandise ranges have depicted Smudger with either a black or brass dome. Despite being numbered on television, no toy or artwork has shown him with his number.
