BoCo is a green Diesel who works on Edward's Branch Line.

Bio

BoCo arrived on Sodor around 1966, and was first mistaken as a "Diseasel" by Bill and Ben for stealing their trucks, but Edward soon put a stop to their games. He looked after Edward's line while he was being overhauled after Edward was damaged when his crank pin broke and won the respect of many of the steam engines including Donald and Douglas. He usually resides at Wellsworth but is welcome anywhere for he is now "part of the family".

Basis

BoCo is a BR Class 28 Co-Bo Diesel-electric engine.

Persona

BoCo is a tame Diesel engine, who is sensible, kind, and has a decent sense of humour. Upon his arrival, he was unfortunate enough to be set upon by the mischievous Bill and Ben, when, thinking he had intentionally stolen their trucks, they pretended to be one engine and nearly made his eyes pop out. BoCo is now wise to the tank engine twins' pranks and is also good friends with Edward and Duck. He is a true friend and is often willing to stick up for the underdog. BoCo is firm, but fair and friendly in his nature, not being afraid to speak his mind. Even Gordon soon thought of him in high regards when he "saved" him from Bill and Ben's antics. BoCo upholds a more respectable, likable image for Diesel engines everywhere, being happy to show the more pompous engines that Diesels have their uses. BoCo helps bring good order across Edward's branch line, even occasionally pulling main line trains, as the Fat Controller recognises how versatile he is. 

Livery

BoCo is painted in the green livery of British Railways with yellow warning panels.
