Mavis
Mavis

Mavis is a diesel shunter who works at Ffarquhar Quarry.

Bio

Mavis worked at the Ffarquhar Quarry Company to shunt trucks in their proper sidings for Toby to take to the harbour. After coming to a standstill in a frozen mud bank and rescuing Toby from a precarious tight-rope walk, Mavis was allowed to venture further down the line.

Persona

Mavis was arrogant until being brought down to earth after her embarrassing incident at the Ffarquhar crossing. Despite this, Mavis is a reliable, honest, hard-working engine, and unusually for a diesel, shows respect for the steam engines. However, unlike most engines, hauling trucks makes her feel important.

Mavis has now matured and acts as a motherly figure to the other engines.

Livery

Mavis is painted black with yellow hazard stripes on her front and rear. She has her name and "The Ffarquhar Quarry Co. Ltd." written in white on her cab and sideplates respectively.
