"How about a race Thomas! The first one to the station is the winner!"
— Bertie, Three Cheers for Thomas

  • Registration number: CRD 54
  • Class: AEC Regal "T Class" London Country Area bus
  • Built: Sometime between 1929 and 1948

Bertie is a red bus who works near Thomas' Branch Line.


Bertie was first seen taking Thomas' passengers after he got stuck in the snow. He later challenged Thomas to a race, and they have become the firmest of friends.

Later, he began to complain about Thomas being late due to the Main Line Engines being late at Elsbridge due to work on The Viaduct.

In 2006, he was shown to take workmen to Anopha Quarry with Toby, but couldn't get past the front gate, and one morning he was ill, and Toby had to take some of the workmen on Henrietta's balcony. For this reason, Victoria was restored to help Bertie and Toby with the workmen.


Bertie is friendly and ready to help anyone in need, but can't resist teasing Thomas about being slow.


Bertie is painted in the common red livery of buses in the United Kingdom, mostly famously used by London Transport.
