Thomas & the Magic RailroadEdit

Diesel 10 once visited the Island of Sodor a long time ago and caused trouble for the steam engines while he was there. During his visit, he found Lady, the engine responsible for keeping Sodor alive, and chased her, making her crash. Following the accident, Lady's caretaker, Burnett Stone, hid Lady in his workshop and tried to restore her, but failed to bring her back up to steam.

Several years later, Diesel 10 returned to Sodor while the Fat Controller was on vacation, intending to destroy Lady forever. He was first seen by Thomas and Gordon when he raced past them at Killaban Station, and brought his two lapdogs, Splatter and Dodge, to the railway, who were present when he was scheming. He caused several problems for the steam engines, such as dumping sneezing powder around Tidmouth Sheds and later destroying the scaffolding that had been placed beside the shed.

When Mr. Conductor travelled across Sodor to find the windmill, Diesel 10 found him and held him over the Big Dipper, intending to drop him. However, Mr. Conductor managed to escape by cutting one of the hydraulics hoses to his claw with a pair of wire cutters, causing him to fling Mr. Conductor across the island and to the windmill. Diesel 10 was later present at the Coaling Plant, where he was covered in coal when he was teaching Splatter and Dodge “how to stop being stupid”. After Junior flew in the air after riding the windmill's sails, he landed on Diesel 10's cab, who raced across the island and to the smelter's yard, where he tried to push James and Junior into the melting pot. Fortunately, Junior and James managed to escape by using the last of the former's gold dust.

After Lady was brought back up into steam and returned to Sodor, Diesel 10 found her and began chasing her, Thomas and Burnett across the island, until they reached the viaduct, but not before Splatter and Dodge betrayed him. Lady, Burnett and Thomas managed to cross the Big Dipper safely while it was collapsing, but it had already done so by the time Diesel 10 came over it and he fell into a barge of sludge below the bridge and was sent away in disgrace.

Thomas & FriendsEdit

Diesel 10 later returned to Sodor years later under unknown circumstances. It can be assumed, however, that the Fat Controller decided to give him a second chance. He was seen working at the scrapyard, loading piles of scrap into trucks. The very sight of his return caused Thomas and Percy to shudder in fright.

When the steam and diesel engines were holding a meeting at the coaling plant so that they could work on the Sodor Airport, Thomas was sent to the scrapyards to inform Diesel 10 of the meeting. However, Thomas was too frightened to meet Diesel 10 again and sped away as fast as he could, not believing that Diesel 10 would want to help the steam engines due to their difficulties in the past.

Soon, the airport was nearly complete with its construction, until a water tower collapsed, cracking the runway and blocking the line. With Harvey all the way on the other side of the island, Thomas decided to ask Diesel 10 for assistance, knowing he was the only one left who could help. After some slight hesitation, Diesel 10 agreed to help clear the wreckage.

After Thomas was found prior to the reopening of Great Waterton, Diesel 10 was among the diesels present at the quarry when they heard the news. Later, when the Sodor Search and Rescue Centre was opened, Diesel 10 was present at the rescue centre's grand opening, standing on a cliffside overlooking the rescue centre and the steam engines below, threatening to return.

When Percy was experiencing a falling-out with Thomas, Diesel 10 decided to manipulate him into helping him restore the Vicarstown Dieselworks, by having him visit the Dieselworks and befriend him. Diesel 10 managed to convince Thomas to arrive at the Dieselworks, where he was held hostage while he, Percy and the other diesels went to the Sodor Steamworks. Once there, Diesel 10 betrayed Percy and took over the Steamworks. Percy returned to the Dieselworks to rescue Thomas when he noticed that sparks from Pinchy had set the main building ablaze. Percy brought Belle and Flynn to put out the fire. After Thomas was saved and the fire was put out, Percy, Kevin and the rest of the Steam Team went to the Steamworks. After a brief argument with the diesels, the Fat Controller arrived and, after being told about the state of the Dieselworks, agreed to have the place restored. Diesel 10 and the other diesels worked alongside the steam engines to restore the Dieselworks.

When it was Christmas time, Diesel 10 became jealous of the steam engines for having more decorations at Tidmouth Sheds than he and the diesels had at the Dieselworks. He began stealing decorations from the sheds to bring to the Dieselworks, enlisting a reluctant Paxton to help him. Diesel 10 was caught by Percy, who chased him back to the Dieselworks with the rest of the Steam Team, where Diesel 10 found out that the Fat Controller had, in fact, had Paxton deliver some decorations to the Dieselworks, so he gave the decorations back to the Steam Team. But as most of them had been damaged, he gave them the Dieselworks' decorations too the next day, as he and the other diesels considered Sidney to be a good enough decoration.


Diesel 10 is an evil, conniving, manipulative, bullying and raving diesel locomotive. He absolutely despises steam engines, would call them taunting names like "Puffball" and "Teapot" and is not above do anything to get rid of them if possible. He is Sodor's strongest (but not quite largest) diesel, his power being enforced by his slightly malfunctioning claw, Pinchy. He can use this deftly, and is even able to use it to make a sculpture. Pinchy, though, seems to have a mind of its own, as it has been shown to "punch" Diesel 10 in the face from time to time, which he loathes. All engines, steam and diesel alike, fear or respect him.

Despite his brutality, some of his demeanour appears to have cooled, and his behaviour has apparently improved enough that Sir Topham Hatt allowed him back to the Island. He gets along enough with the other Sudrian diesels, but his efforts to help are often only when it suits his personal interest and he still harbours his scheming ways and anti-steam sentiments.

Technical DetailsEdit


Diesel 10 is based on a BR Class 42 diesel-hydraulic with an added non-regulation hydraulic claw. All but two members of the class were named after Royal Navy warships, so they, and the similar Class 43 (not to be confused with the InterCity 125 power cars with the same class number, the basis for Pip and Emma), were nicknamed "Warships". Two of these engines are preserved. In real life, adding in a hydraulic claw onto a diesel engine would most likely be considered illegal.[3]

Diesel 10's basis


Diesel 10 is painted ochre with tan stripes along his sides. His buffers and "Pinchy" are painted dark brown.

  1. In an original version of the Thomas and the Magic Railroad script, Diesel 10 was to have been a new engine to the island, and Pinchy was going to be concealed beneath Diesel 10's roof. These were kept in the book, Diesel 10 Means Trouble, the magazine story Left Alone also possibly has him illustrated without his claw.
    • Also, when Neil Crone replaced Keith Scott as the voice of Diesel 10, he initially had a Russian accent. However, due to complaints from test audiences, who believed it could be considered offensive, it was changed to a New Jersey accent.
  2. "Pinchy" was originally built with no gaps between its buckets, which carried onto early promotional arts/illustrations.
  3. Diesel 10 only appeared in specials and movies until the seventeenth series, where he appeared in an episode for the first time. The seventeenth series also marked his final appearance in the series to date, though his popularity with the fanbase allows merchandise of him to continue production even after his discontinuation in media.
  4. Outside of Thomas and the Magic Railroad, Pinchy has not been named, and is simply referred to as a claw.
  5. Some of Diesel 10's production-made face masks are now owned by Twitter user ThomasTankMerch.
  6. Diesel 10 has had a few modifications throughout the television series. These include:
    • Calling All Engines!:
      • His pupils became bigger.
      • His brake pipe was removed.
      • The wipers on his front windows were removed.
      • His body is incorrectly fitted to his chassis at the front, leaving a gap above his front bufferbeam.
    • Misty Island Rescue:
      • The 'teeth' on his claw now interlock.
      • His upper bodywork is level once again, but fitted higher with gaps above both bufferbeams now.
  7. In early concept art, Diesel 10 had his name painted on his side. In addition, his claw bucket was smaller, his arm was designed differently, and he had three brake pipes, whereas his final model only had one.
  8. His Ertl toy depicts him as a BR Class 46 with an added claw. This is due to re-using Diesel 199's tooling but with modifications.
  9. Diesel 10 is the first villain in the series' films and specials, to be an arch nemesis of the main protagonists.
  10. Pinchy was briefly used during Rebecca's imagination scene in What Rebecca Does.
  11. Despite Britt Allcroft claiming that it just popped into her mind, it is believed that Diesel 10's name is a reference to him being the tenth diesel engine to be introduced into the television series.
  12. Diesel 10's horn sound from the seventeenth series was most likely reused from the Theodore Tugboat ferry characters Philip and Filmore.
    • However, in Engines Working Together, his horn sound is a low pitched version of Derek's.
    • his horn was also reused for a garbage boat in the Family Guy episode Pawtucket Pete
  13. Diesel 10 had a total of eight facial expressions, one of which, a clenched face, was never shown on-screen. There have also been copies of some of his face masks as well.[5]
  14. Due to the limitations of his Gauge 1 model, the bottom half of Pinchy's bucket was unable to move until his return in CGI.
  15. Diesel 10 was the only character introduced in Thomas and the Magic Railroad to appear in CGI. Splatter and Dodge were both dropped from early drafts in both Day of the Diesels and The Great Race.

  1. ==Background InformationEdit==

In Thomas and the Magic Railroad, Diesel 10 was originally played by Australian actor Keith Scott and the character was intended only as a villain supplementary to Doug Lennox's character, P.T. Boomer. Boomer was cut due to early audience reactions and Diesel 10's role was rewritten to make him the primary villain. In the process, Keith Scott was replaced by Canadian improv comedian Neil Crone. Crone, with fellow improvisation comedian Kevin Frank, had been auditioning for the film to play the trucks. Crone was given the part of Diesel 10 when he was heard performing a gruff voice during auditions. In the final film, Crone and Frank improvised much of their dialogue, including the name "Pinchy" for Diesel 10's claw.

His plan in the original script was also much different. He plotted to get rid of the steam engines by making their lives miserable, one of the sections of the plan included the "Sneezing Powder" sequence (originally quarry dust in the original script and Little Engines Can Do BIG Things). He also planned to destroy all the buffers on the railway so the steam engines would crash and derail, with the diesels taking over and rebuilding the buffers after. The plan to destroy the buffers was further bolstered by his discovery of the buffers that led to the entrance of Mr. Conductor's Magic Railroad, thus stopping him from continuing his plans of diesel domination. This plan was the reason why George was going to be one of his assistants. Also, instead of returning to Sodor to finally destroy Lady once and for all, he was a new engine who Sir Topham Hatt brought to help while he was away but instead caused more havoc on the island.

Following his return in Calling All Engines!, he remained absent for 3 years before having a cameo in The Great Discovery and did not appear until 2 years later, in the post-credits scene of Misty Island Rescue, where he began serving as a special-exclusive villain.

Following Day of the Diesels, Diesel 10 did not appear again until the seventeenth series episode, The Missing Christmas Decorations, which is his only full appearance in a television episode. Aside from "Pinchy's" cameo in a fantasy scene in the twenty-second series episode, What Rebecca Does, Diesel 10 has been absent from the screen since 2013, probably due to the writers and Mattel considering him too scary for the audience.

Matt Wilkinson (originally Rupert Degas) took over the role since 2010, giving Diesel 10 a gruff British accent, though his initial performance had a considerably more villainous deep tone to it.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Gauge 1 modelEdit

Diesel 10's model was scratch built from brass and was built with pickup contacts and an eye mechanism with two servos that allow them to move however the crew member with the controls want it. The model was also equipped with a functional claw, controlled by the pre-programmed "motion control".[1]

Concept art showed that it was originally meant to extend after unfolding from inside his roof before it was dropped for engineering concerns. The model also had an alternate extended version of the hydraulic claw arm, which prominently saw use when he gets smacked in the face and hung from the viaduct.

Eight different facial expressions were sculpted in clay before being cast in resin for the final model, although only his clenched face was not used on screen. Of these, six of them were sculpted for use in Thomas and the Magic Railroad, the remaining two being sculpted for use in Calling All Engines!

Life-size modelEdit

A life-sized version of Diesel 10 was required for a scene where the actors interact with him. Junior was green-screened in the scrapyard and rolling shots (also including P.T. Boomer of the chase scene in the original version), while a facade of Diesel 10's rear cab was done for the ease of editing. For the scene where he picked up Mr. Conductor, only half of the claw's arm was built, as the entire body did not need to be seen.









Close-up modelEdit

A close-up model of Diesel 10 was required for scenes where he had to interact with the close-up scale figures in Calling All Engines! The model was not complete and only the claw was built.




CGI modelEdit

In 2009, the series introduced Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) as a replacement for the show's long-standing live-action models. Diesel 10 was recreated from scratch in CGI by Nitrogen Studios. His model was "hand-sculpted" in Maya, a 3D animation and modelling software.

Photographs of Diesel 10's Gauge 1 model were used for reference. According to Greg Tiernan, every detail of the original television series models for each character is carefully reproduced in the CGI model. The models are subjected to many rounds of review before they are submitted to HiT Entertainment for final input and approval.
