Ned is a steam shovel.
Bucyrus-Erie Steam Shovel Model B-2
Ned loves demolishing, though he is usually stuck with quarry digging, though he once inadvertedly helped knock a buidling down that Oliver couldn't. He is also shown to be quite clumsy at times, as once he knocked a key stone off a bridge that Thomas was about to cross, prompting Jack to race in and save his friend. However, he means well, and is a good friend and reliable to his friends.
Ned means well, but he can sometimes be clumsy. But apart from the minor bumps and accidents, Ned's heart is as big as his bucket and he is a valued member of the Pack.
Ned is painted brown and orange with a grey roof, a dark brown bucket, arm, and chassis and yellow detailing. He has his number painted on each side.
