First introduced in the 10th book "Four Little Engines", this Narrow Gauge railway operates independently from the NWR, though Main Line NWR engines have interacted with them in conversation. Each engine has a real-life counterpart on the Talyllyn railway, with a corresponding name - ''Talyllyn'', ''Dolgoch'', ''Sir Haydn'', ''Edward Thomas'', ''Midlander'', ''Douglas'' and ''Tom Rolt''. Duke is based on the Corris Railway's ''Prince''.

Built: 1996

Arrived on Sodor: 1996

By the mid 1990's, the Skarloey Railway's traffic and popularity was at an all time high. In response, this engine was built, and this most recent addition to the Skarloey Railway was named after the Chief Engineer of the Maintenance Crew, much to his surprise and honor. Ivo Hugh has yet to have any stories with him, for as of 2012, there haven't been any additional books on the Skarloey Railway.

* AdaptedOut: In the TV series, Ivo Hugh's place of SKR #7 was filled by "Fearless" Freddie.

!'''Duke, #8'''



Duke was once part of one of the old railways on Sodor in the late 1800's. Being named after the then-Duke of Sodor and bar none the longest engine to serve on that railway. Together with two other engines, Stuart and Falcon, they served on the railway for many years, giving the two younger engines lessons on their personality. Sadly, when the railway was closed in 1947, Duke was the only one not bought and was left in his shed for many years, until he was rediscovered in 1969. Duke was brought back to run on the Skarloey Railway, reunited with Stuart (Peter Sam) and Falcon (Sir Handel).

D7101 came to the NWR on loan at a time when non-NWR diesels were treated with great hostility. Though 7101 maintained his manners, his companion 199 did not share his sentiments. During a trial run, both 7101 and 199 failed in pulling their trains, and had to be helped by Henry. 7101 was the only one that helped Henry and was able to strike up a conversation with him afterward, admiring him for the monumental achievement of pulling two dead diesels and both their trains while malfunctioning. His kindness paid off; 199 was sent away and 7101 stayed, now renumbered D3 and nicknamed Bear for his the tendency of his engine to growl, which the diesel took in stride. Bear works on the main line, accepted as a friend by big engines, especially Henry, James and the Scottish Twins.

Edward reassured [=BoCo=] that they meant no harm, and [=BoCo=] is one of the few that can keep Bill and Ben in line, like when he "threatened" to take their trucks if they continued teasing Gordon when he was forced to detour.
