Winston is the Fat Controller's inspection car. 


In Adventures on Rails, he was brought to replace the Fat Controller's New Car after it was accidently crushed by James. He immediatly found out about the Fat Controllers poor driving skills after he accidently took his brakes and sent him flying along the Main Line up to the Steamworks. He is usually driven by the Fat Controller if not by his Driver.


Winston is as devotedly thoughtful and loyal as a butler. He is willing, helpful, and very patient with Sir Topham Hatt's, frankly, terrible driving skills, often reminding him that it is still "early days" whenever something goes wrong. Winston helps the Fat Controller navigate about the railway without inconveniencing any of the engines while they are going about their work. Being a car on rails, he may look unconventional, but Winston is highly tolerant, considerate, sensitive to others, and is only too happy to do what he can for Sir Topham Hatt, though he can, at times, become rather distracted.


Winston is painted red. He has a gold nameplate on either side.
