North Western Stories Wiki

Annie & Clarabel are Thomas' Faithful Coaches, whom he cares for and would never want to be separated from them.

Annie and Clarabel both have seating accommodation for carrying passengers; Clarabel also has a brake compartment for luggage and a guard. The two coaches are nearly always seen coupled together, with Annie usually facing Thomas and Clarabel facing backwards.


Annie and Clarabel are respectful to all of the engines, but most of all Gordon and Thomas, they show a kind and caring side to everyone on the whole railway. However, despite their kindness and sweetness, when needed they can be stern, especially Annie. For instance, they scolded Thomas for teasing Gordon after his accident, although they are no saints themselves. Although the two respect Gordon, both Annie and Clarabel do not tolerate his arrogance. Annie and Clarabel are best friends, but like all friends, sometimes they fall out but always try to make things right in the end.
