Year Built:



Bash and Dash are mischievous twins who always finish each other's sentences. They were sent to Misty Island because they were naughty on the Mainland, but now they always try to do their best for the Fat Controller.

Toby became good friends with Bash and tried to find him a home on Sodor. Emily also became friends with Dash.

They, along with Ferdinand, were sad because Ol' Wheezy was broken. They later laughed at Spencer when he did not know that Stafford was not with him.


Bash and Dash are the wacky, mischievous Logging Loco twin engines who know each other so well that they can often finish the others' sentences. When they were on Misty Island, they were easily distracted, reckless and got very little work done and when they did work, it was in a particularly silly, wacky, or questionable manner.

However, after Thomas wound up on Misty Island, later managing to make his way back to Sodor, the twins were welcomed to the railway by the Fat Controller. The Logging Locos' outlook has now changed and they all try to be Really Useful engines.


Bash and Dash are based on the Bear Harbor Lumber Company's locomotive #1. They received numerous modifications from their basis. Most notably, their yarding mechanism is behind their cabs instead of their fronts to accommodate their faces.

Their driving gears and brakes have been removed entirely and they have screwlink couplings. Their cabs appear to be much sturdier, as opposed to the "open" cab that their real life counterpart possesses.


Bash's boiler, wheels and lining are painted slate grey and his cab and dome are painted amber. Dash's color scheme is a reverse of his twin: his boiler, wheels, and lining are painted amber and his cab and dome are painted slate grey.
