Smudger is a narrow-gauge tank engine. He was a minor antagonist.

Allies: The Mid Sodor Manager (boss), Diesel, Arry, Bert, Bulgy, George, Diesel 10, Daisy, Mine Engine, Bertram (formerly), No.2 Stanley (master), Max and Monty

According to Duke, Smudger was a show-off who rode roughly and often came off the rails. Duke tried to warn him to be careful, but Smudger never listened to his advice. He was finally punished by being turned into a generator and being put behind the engine shed.

No information was given about his fate once the Mid Sodor Railway closed, so it must be assumed that he has either remained there or been scrapped.

He also appears in a cactus190706 youtube model movie called Sodor's Long Forgotten Secret as the main antagonist along with Bertram as the primary antagonist.


Smudger was a complete showoff, and often came off the rails, but refused to listen to advice. Duke warned him to be careful, but he took no notice until he was put in his place by being turned into a generator.


Smudger is a Fletcher Jennings 0-4-0, recycled from Rheneas model.


Smudger was pained dark green with black lining. His nameplate and number are both gold. As he shared the same model as Rheneas, the inside of his cab was red. Despite being numbered on television, no toy or artwork had shown him with his number 2.
