* TheDeterminator: Duck's philosophy revolves around getting a train to its destination, even if on one cylinder. By comparison, according to him, diesels do nothing but moan for a fitter if a mechanical issue arises.

* {{Jerkass}}: Instantly established himself by talking contemptuously of steam engines to D7101 [[ImStandingRightHere in clear hearing range of Duck and Oliver.]]
* TheLoad: Despite all three engines suffering from failing systems, Henry and D7101 still tried their hardest to get all their trains through to the station. D199 however, just sulked.



* EvilerThanThou: The troublesome trucks play their tricks because they're bored and want to have fun. The spiteful brakevan, however, is an asshole, who simply wants to spite everyone he comes into contact with.

The spiteful brakevan, however, is an asshole, who simply wants to spite everyone he comes into contact with. Subverted later when one of his pranks backfires onto him, the trucks are having far too much fun to listen to his pleas to stop.

As work on the NWR continued to get heavier, the Fat Controller decided to order a goods engine from Scotland...only to end up having two. He set them to work anyway while deciding which one to send back, but both were determined to stay. Though both had their successes, it was marred by the worries of Douglas being sent back and scrapped which resulted him in misplacing an important coach, Donald crashing into a signal-box, and Douglas destroying a spiteful brakevan. Things finally came to a head in the winter season where the decision was made, but the committee of engines, combined with the hard work of the twins keeping the lines clear in the snow, has convinced the Fat Controller to keep both of them. From then on, the the blue-painted Scottish twins do a variety of work, running on both the main line and the various branch lines on the NWR.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the books, they were painted blue after arriving at Sodor. With three blue engines already, the TV producers wisely decided to keep their more distinctive black paint.
