Scruff works with Whiff at the waste dump. Like Whiff, Scruff loves working with trash and doesn't mind being dirty. When Thomas first met Scruff, he wasn't impressed because Scruff was so very scruffy. Thomas decided to surprise Scruff with a good wash down, but Scruff was so frightened he ran away! Eventually, Scruff proved to Thomas and the other engines that he is Really Useful on the Island of Sodor - he is very strong and can pull large loads of garbage to Whiff's Waste Dump.
Scruff is part of the magical world of Thomas & Friends. The engines all work and play together on the Island of Sodor. While they are doing their very useful work, they learn important lessons about friendship and getting along. Many of the characters are available to purchase as part of different toy brands, including the timeless Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Series. You can purchase Thomas and many of his engine friends, as well as wooden track, buildings, destinations and sets from the simple oval to the Deluxe Tidmouth Sheds set. Many engines are available on a limited basis and are retired, so check ebay or other online auction sites for your favorites if you can't find them here or in a store near you.
