Smudger was a show off engine who rode roughly and often came off the rails. He used to work with Duke, but he caused so many accidents with his reckless behavior that the manager decided to put him out of commission. He now serves as a generator behind the engine shed.
Smudger 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.
