Buster is a simple steamroller who goes about his job with pride and content. What Buster lacks in imagination, he makes up for with heart, commitment and hard work, and is liked by all the machines, for his wonderful enthusiasm and kindness to help with everything.


Buster likes to think of himself as the "world's fastest steamroller", and often dreams of winning races. This came true when he won a race against Max and Monty on the newly completed Sodor Rally Track.
