Splatter and Dodge (collectively referred to as Splodge) were Diesel 10's former bumbling sidekicks.

Splatter and Dodge are two diesel shunters who, at one point, worked alongside Diesel 10. Diesel 10 referred to the two as "Splodge," claiming he didn't have time to say both names.

Diesel 10 wanted to rid the railway of steam engines, and Splatter and Dodge were complacent with his plans, regularly keeping a lookout for their boss and being present when he was scheming.

The two eventually grew tired of their boss, however, and when he tried to chase down Lady and Thomas, they refused to follow him. What happened to them after that is unknown, but they likely led normal lives after that.


Both engines are fairly simple-minded and tend to banter. Splatter is the more talkative of the two, while Dodge is more intelligent.


Splatter and Dodge are based on BR Class 08 diesel shunters.


Splatter is painted purple and gray while Dodge is painted olive and gray. Both have their names painted on their sides in white, and are heavily weathered.
