Minor Characters in The Railway Series - Narrow Gauge Engines - Skarloey Rolling Stock - Agnes, Ruth, Lucy, Jemima and Beatrice

Agnes, Ruth, Lucy, Jemima and Beatrice

These four coaches have served the Skarloey Railway, and are named after Sir Handel Brown's daughters. Sir Handel the engine, however, referred to them as "cattle trucks", which made him very unpopular with them. Agnes is a first class carriage, and looks down on the others, who are third class. She appears to be their leader, and has a deep voice. They first appeared in Four Little Engines, and have appeared in every Skarloey Railway-centred volume since. Their real-life equivalents are the Talyllyn Railway carriages numbers 1 to 4.

Beatrice is a guard's van, usually coupled behind Agnes, and the others: Ruth, Lucy and Jemima. Like them, she is named after one of Sir Handel Brown's daughters. The coaches look down on her, and claim that she "smells of fish and cheese". She is, however, very useful. She has a ticket booth and an emergency buzzer, and sometimes even carries passengers when the coaches are full. She too has appeared in every Skarloey Railway-centred volume. Her real-life equivalent is the Talyllyn Railway brake van number 5.
