Dustin is an American self-propelled snowplough locomotive.


When a large blizzard hits the Island of Sodor, The Fat Controller calls in Dustin to deal with the snow. He also helped clean up after a big storm hits Sodor and won the charity races. He later helped to build a weather station with Belle and Flynn.


Dustin is a strong, but slow snow-removal steam engine. He enjoys clearing snow and being a Really Useful Engine no matter the weather. He is always eager and determined to help out in any way he can.


Dustin is painted burgundy and black. He has his number, "1869" and the initials "J.W.E." painted on his sides in white and his name is painted in white lettering on black nameplates mounted on his tender.



  • Dustin's number, 1869 and the J.W.E. initials painted on his sides are a historical reference. The first concept of a machine railroad snowplough was conceived by J.W. Elliot, a Toronto dentist, in the year 1869.
  • Unlike Logan and Sam, Dustin does not have his own promotional video on the Thomas & Friends YouTube channel.
