Stephen Topham Hatt

Stephen Topham Hatt (born 1941) is Sir Topham and Lady Hatt's grandson and Bridget's older brother.


Stephen had never grown up to be controller, and has always remained as about the same age. He was amongst the boys who teased Daisy about bull's-eyes, and was also amongst the boys who teased Sir Handel about George. He and Bridget helped Toby discover an old castle. He thought that Edward was the strongest and the best, after Edward pushed Duck, Gordon, and their trains into Knapford Station. He and Bridget flew a kite, which got blown away, but Thomas, along with Charlie, Percy, Edward, and Emily retrieved it. He and Bridget later caught chickenpox, convincing Henry that engines could catch chickenpox as well.
