Madge? Do I hear you correctly Britt Allwood?
When is Guy joining the ranks?
Madge is a snub-nosed green and cream lorry with a three-wheeled cab and a flatbed. Her first appearance was in the episode 'Cool Truckings' and then 'Wash Behind Your Buffers' in Season 11's special DVD, 'Engines and Escapades'. She is described as having a motherly attitude towards the little engines, and often eager to please-so much so she forgets her own priorities. Madge is based on a Scammell Lorry, commonly called 'Scammell Scarabs' and were used frequently around British Railways.
She is the first character to appear in a DVD-exclusive, 'Engines and Escapades'. She also appears in 'The Great Discovery'.
Madge has been released in Wooden Railway, Take-along, and Trackmaster ranges.
This is a super little book, at least the women are getting some more representation now - the series is really good and cute for little hands.
