"Full steam ahead!"
— Captain's catchphrase

  • Built: Sometime between 1932 and 1945

Captain is a brave lifeboat who is part of the Search and Rescue Team.


When Thomas got lost on Misty Island, he helped in the search for him and brought Jobi logs for the Sodor Search and Rescue Centre.

When Stephen went missing, Captain went to look for him too.

Once, Emily accidentally lost her special globe of the world to the sea, but luckily, Captain was there to help push the globe to Cranky, so he could lift it back onto Emily's flatbed.

In Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure he brought the police to arrest Sailor John and was later seen with some divers recovering the treasure in Arlesburgh Harbour.


Being a lifeboat, Captain knows that duty may call out at sea to help and rescue anyone at any time. He takes this role seriously and is highly assertive, confident, and is unfazed in the face of daring, dangerous missions, but is not made ostentatious or egotistical by his important responsibilities. He is level-headed, always knows what has to be done, and shows good leadership skills.


Captain's cab is painted yellow, his sides, blue, and his hull, red. He's lined in white. He has a long, thin, yellow mast at the stern of his body.
