Annie and Clarabel are Thomas's two orange coaches that he uses for passenger service on the Ffarquhar Branch.


Annie and Clarabel were built in 1896, with Annie being built first apparently. They likely came to Sodor when the NWR was completed in 1915. They were used on local trains with Edward, Eagle, James and Henry along with the other orange coaches. In 1945, they were given to Thomas for his branch line and and their names painted on them. Annie and Clarabel have been very loyal to Thomas and he is extremely fond of them. They had a major overhaul in the summer of 1998.
