Ada, Jane, and Mabel


Talyllyn Railway's carriages 11, 12 and 13


Skarloey Railway


4 wheel

Ada, Jane, and Mabel are three open carriages who where built for the Skarloey Railway while Skarloey and Rheneas were away being mended. Ada, Jane and Mabel are plain coaches without roofs.


Ada was built in 1955, Jane was built in 1956, and Mabel was built 1957. They were originally designed for carrying quarry workers, but are now used for tourist traffic on sunny days. Peter Sam mentioned them in a conversation with Skarloey, when he returned to service.

When a documentary was made about the Skarloey Railway, Ada, Jane, and Mabel had the honour of carrying the television equipment and cameras. They were later used for the same purpose when a documentary was made about Skarloey and Rheneas' hundredth birthday.


Due to their appearance, Sir Handel considers them as trucks (which they dislike him for), but Peter Sam insist they are coaches because they have seats. As Ada leads the way, these three always find fun and laughter in a day's work. The coaches are very fond of Peter Sam.


Ada, Jane, and Mabel are painted light blue.
