Year Rebuilt:



When Oliver returned from the works after falling in the turntable well, S.C. Ruffey and the trucks enjoy singing rude songs about him and the event. Toad, worried by the lack of respect for the engines, consulted with Oliver and Duck and made a plan. Oliver then shunted S.C. Ruffey and his lieutenants and prepared to pull them. S.C. Ruffey rallied the trucks into holding back, but this only resulted in S.C. Ruffey being pulled apart.

While in the Railway Series he was scrapped after the accident, S.C. Ruffey was repaired in the television series and now remains respectfully silent, especially around Oliver.


S.C. Ruffey used to be extremely rude to the engines, particularly Oliver, and would often lead the troublesome trucks in chorus when singing rude songs about him and the other engines.

However, after his accident, it can be implied that he learned his lesson and now behaves around the other engines.


S.C. Ruffey is based on a 7-plank open wagon.


In the Railway Series, S.C. Ruffey is painted dark brown with his company's name on his side in white lettering. In the television series, S.C. Ruffey is painted grey and brown orange with a light grey face and his company's name on his side in white lettering. After he was rebuilt, he was painted the same as he was in the Railway Series.
