Diesel 10 in Magic Railroad
Diesel 10 is the main villain in the film. He likes to cause chaos and scare the other steam engines. He was said to have been on the island before, and has returned to find Lady, whom he almost managed to destroy. Diesel 10 did find her near the end of the film, but during a chase, he fell from a collapsing viaduct and was sent plunging down into a barge full of sludge. He did not make a reappearance until the full-length special, Calling All Engines. He was voiced by Neil Crone.
Diesel 10 in Calling All Engines
He also appeared as a character in the special, Calling All Engines, where he works mainly in the scrap yards, picking up scrap metal and dumping it into trucks. A lot of the steam and diesel engines were afraid of Diesel 10. He was later seen clearing tree branches from Gordon's Hill, where Thomas persuaded him to help clear the tracks at the airport. Although he is a very grumpy diesel engine, Diesel 10 agrees and helps to clean the wreckage, allowing Thomas to retrieve George to flatten the runway. Footage of Calling All Engines with Diesel 10 is seen in the Season 10 interstitial segments.In Calling all engines when Diesel 10 was helping out Thomas and the other engines doesn't mean he can't go back to being Evil.
Diesel 10 is based on a British Rail Class 42 with an ochre-coloured paint scheme. He sports an overhead claw which he referred to in the first movie as "Pinchy". He also made a cameo in The Great Discovery and was seen in A Christmas To Remember.
Lady is a gold And purple tank engine
Lady in Magic Railroad
Lady holds the Magic Railroad together - she emits colorful shavings that turn into gold dust. Because of this, she is kept hidden in Burnett Stone's workshop in Muffle Mountain after Diesel 10 made her crash. Stone repaired her, but she would not run. Eventually, his granddaughter Lily suggested using Sodor coal, which finally allowed her to make steam and return to the Island of Sodor. Diesel 10 found Lady, and chased her and Thomas. Thomas and Lady outran him, however, leaving him to his fate. It was found that Lady was the source of Mr. Conductor's gold dust. She was voiced by Britt Allcroft.
Lady in Calling All Engines
Lady later appeared in Calling All Engines. She appeared in Thomas' dream alongside Rusty, telling him how to get the airport finished. In the Calling All Engines DVD's Character Gallery, Lady is mentioned as "... a magical engine. When she works along the rails, she spreads gold dust along the rails. Lady has been known to help Thomas and his friends when there was no other engine to turn to..."
Lady is a slattern.
Splatter & Dodge
Splatter & Dodge are the two bumbling sidekicks of Diesel 10. He collectively refers to them as "Splodge" claiming that saying both their names takes too long. Although the other engines do fear them, they do not have the intelligence or villainy to match Diesel 10. Splatter is purple and more talkative than Dodge. Dodge is olive and more intelligent than Splatter. The two grow disdain for him at the end of the film, abandoning Diesel 10 to catch Lady on his own. The two are based on British Rail Class 08 shunters. Their whereabouts at the end of the film are unknown. They were voiced by Cheech and Chong.
Mr. Conductor is the railway conductor who often helps to run the railway for Sir Topham Hatt when he is not helping out at Shining Time Station. When Sir Topham Hatt goes on holiday, Mr. Conductor travels to Sodor to keep Diesel 10 in order, but he runs out of gold dust, and can't get back to Shining Time nor find out how to make more, leaving him powerless. He eventually finds a clue and when Burnett Stone travels to the island, his engine, Lady, provides him with gold dust. He was played by Alec Baldwin. The role is based on the character in the series Shining Time Station, previously played by Ringo Starr (Season 1, Christmas Special) and George Carlin (Seasons 2-3, TV Specials, Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales).
Lily is the granddaughter of Burnett Stone. She lives in a big city, but comes to visit him during the film. After getting on the wrong train, she arrives at Shining Time Station, where she meets C. Junior. The station master, Stacy Jones, drives her to Burnett's home, and tells Lily that she wishes she could visit Shining Time. Lily meets Junior again, and they travel to Sodor. Later, she and Thomas find a way back to Muffle Mountain. She finds Lady and helps Burnett find a way to make her run and get to the island. She is played by Mara Wilson.
Burnett is Lily's grandfather and Lady's caretaker. He keeps her in Muffle Mountain. He was very sad when Lady crashed and he could not make her work again. He was even more devastated even more when his wife Tasha died. He couldn't get Lady to start until Lily got coal from the Island of Sodor. He did get Lady to work, and became her driver as they outran Diesel 10. He was played by Peter Fonda, who decided that actually acting was a bit much for him this time around.
Mr. Conductor Jr. is Mr. Conductor's cousin, who was on holiday at the beach. Mr. Conductor urged him to travel to Shining Time Station. There, Junior met Lily, and they went to Sodor to find Mr. Conductor. They did find him at a windmill, but Junior became stuck on the windmill, and was flung onto the back of Diesel 10. He ended up in the scrap yard, flung onto James' cab. The two were nearly sent into the smelting pit, until Junior used his gold dust to transport them away. Junior then found Mr. Conductor, who told him that their gold dust was almost depleted. When Lady returned to the Island, he and his cousin found their gold dust again. He seems to like surfing. Junior is played by Michael E. Rodgers.
Patch is a local boy who works for Burnett Stone. He finds Lady and asks Burnett about her. Later he meets Lily and ends up with her until Lily departs for Sodor. The three of them later travel to Sodor in Lady. He was played by Cody McMains.
Mutt is Patch's dog, who tries to help Lily and can sense trouble in the world.
Stacy Jones is the manager of Shining Time Station. She is frequently helped by Mr. Conductor and when Lily arrives at the station by mistake, Stacy drives Lily to Burnett. Didi Conn reprises the role from Shining Time Station.
Billy is a train driver who works in the valley, driving trains to Muffle Mountain, Shining Time, and other places. He was played by Russell Means and was previously played by Tom Jackson on Shining Time Station.
P.T. Boomer was always jealous of Burnett's relationship with his love interest, Tasha. P.T. was known for being a troublemaker, and somehow found a way to put Burnett down. He owned a motorcycle that he caused havoc about on the Shining Time route, once brutally cutting off The Rainbow Sun on the crossing, causing the train to stop abruptly. It was revealed that it was not Diesel 10 that crashed Lady, but P.T., trying to kidnap her. But he returned aboard Diesel 10 hoping to stop Lady once and for all, only to have his plan backfire when he fell off the collapsing viaduct on Diesel 10's cab. He is played by Doug Lennox. P.T.'s scenes were cut or altered after filming and thus didn't not appear in the movie.
