PersonaEdit

Ned means well, but he can sometimes be clumsy. Indeed, he once nearly caused a terrible accident by knocking out the keystone of a bridge when Thomas was due to cross with a goods train. Luckily, Jack managed to save the day by supporting the bridge until Thomas backed up. 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.

TriviaEdit

  • Ned is one of the machines whose silhouette is pictured in the Pack's logo.
  • Ned does not have windows on the front of his cab, making it difficult for an operator to see what is happening. He also has his jib arm right in front of his face, which could make visibility difficult.
  • Originally, Ned had "Packard & Co." written on the sides of his body. It was later changed to "Sodor Construction Company", however his Take Along and Wind-up models still have "Packard & Co." written on his sides.
  • In The Great Discovery, Ned's eye pupils seemed to be thicker than in the episodes.
  • Ned's tyres constantly reappear and disappear throughout the series.
  • In the Italian version Ned is female.
