The Shrimpers


  • They have a note-worthy role in the episode Ghosts, when a group of four or five are accidentally led into a mud bank whilst following Warrior as a guide through the fog back to port. They also appear in the episode Warrior, when Warrior nearly runs into them whilst they are fishing shrimps.


Behind the scenes

  • The Shrimper models were no longer in use after TUGS was cancelled, so the models were brought to the sister show of TUGS; Thomas & Friends, where they could be used as rolling stock,the models were seen in different locations in seasons 3-4. It is unknown where the shrimper models are, especially when CGI animations was used to continue the television series of Thomas & Friends.
  • It is likely that the Shrimper models were build from model kits to save the costs of having to build custom models.
