"As I thought. Rotten wood, rusty frames. Maybe if we put you back together, you'll earn yourself a better name."
— Sir Topham Hatt on S.C. Ruffey's demise, Toad Stands By, fourth season


S.C. Ruffey  (affectionately known as "Scruffey") is a privately owned ballast truck and the ring-leader of the Troublesome Trucks. S.C. Ruffey, also known as Scruffey, was a privately owned ballast wagon and the ring-leader of the Troublesome Trucks.

Bio in the Railway Series

When Oliver returned from the Works after falling in a turntable well, S.C. Ruffey and the trucks sang rude songs about the event. Toad, worried by the lack of respect for the engines, consulted with Oliver and Duck and made a plan. Oliver then shunted S.C. Ruffey and his lieutenants and prepared to pull them. S. C. Ruffey rallied the trucks into holding back, but this only resulted in S.C. Ruffey being pulled apart. The Fat Controller attributed the incident to the wagon's poor condition, but told Oliver not to disclose the fact, saying it was "bad for discipline". After receiving his comeuppance, S.C. Ruffey was most likely scrapped.

Bio in the television series

S. C. Ruffey reprises his role from the Railway Series, however, he was rebuilt following his incident and wisely did not disclose the real reason for his damage.

The Official Website stated that S. C. Ruffey is an old and experienced ring-leader. It also stated that he still works in Oliver's yard.

Basis

S. C. Ruffey is based on a "Private Owner" 7 plank end-door ballast wagon.
