The Breakdown Train is composed of two cranes, two flatbeds, and a carriage for the workmen.

Bio

The Breakdown Train is pulled to accident scenes to lift engines, coaches, and trucks onto the rails. The train is painted dark green and is manned by workmen.

Since Rocky's arrival, the Breakdown Cranes have been rarely seen, but the works unit coach - in several colours - has regularly appeared in the CGI series.

The Breakdown Train returns in The Adventure Begins, in the form of Jerome and Judy, gaining new colors, and increasing in size. Additionally, the works unit coach is now painted orange-brown, its Railway Series livery.

Basis

The Breakdown Train is based on a Cowans Sheldon 30 ton breakdown crane.

Trivia

  • The Breakdown Train's model is currently on display at Drayton Manor, although the flatbed underneath the crane's hook is absent.
  • In the UK dub of the game Trouble on the Tracks, the Breakdown Train is referred to as the "Breakdown Truck."

Merchandise

All merchandises but Hornby had only one crane and flatbed and without the works unit coach, although it was sold separately in TOMY.
