Daisy is a diesel railcar who works with Ryan on the Harwick Branch Line and formerly on Thomas' Branch Line.


Daisy was built especially for the North Western Railway in 1960 as the last of her class. Her construction was commissioned and paid for by British Railways as part of an attempt to convince the Fat Controller of the benifits of diesel traction on branch lines. While he was initially reluctant to accept her, his hand was forced when Thomas crashed into the Ffarquhar Stationmaster's House, which meant a replacement engine was required to run his passenger service.

She was sent to the Ffarquhar Branch Line, but quickly proved to be troublesome and lazy.



Daisy is painted in the BR Brunswick green DMU livery with yellow lining. The number "D1" is painted on her cab sides in white. The BR "Cycling Lion" crest was formerly painted on her sides.

She wears makeup, including eyelashes, red lipstick, blush and blue eyeshadow.


  • Daisy is unique for being the only railcar in her class. All others were 2 to 4 piece DMUs.
  • She knows some French.
