“Oh, my giddy engine!”
―Cormac struggling with the crane

Cormac is a forklift chugger who works at the Drop and Load Yard.


In his first appearance, Cormac was introduced as the chugger responsible for using the Mega Chug Crane at the Drop and Load Yard, working there alongside Old Puffer Pete. He helped Brewster take the last section of the Tootington Tunnel to the worksite. The load was very wide, so they had to use two flatbeds and work side by side. However, Cormac got tired, and as they went around a bend, the tunnel section fell off and rolled down the hill. Brewster and Cormac had to chase it and then catch it just at the right moment. Then they happily took the tunnel section to the worksite, and the tunnel was complete. He was present during the Iron Chuggers contest and set up the wagons with the weight that Speedy and Zack wanted.

Sometime between seasons 5 and 6, Cormac became the sole engine in charge of the Drop and Load Yard after Old Puffer Pete was moved to work at Rocky Ridge Quarry. Around this time, Tai was temporarily put in charge of the yard after Cormac broke his prongs. However, Cormac's long and complex list of instructions was too much for Tai to follow, resulting in her organizing the yard in her own way, much to Cormac's dismay. The two ended up having a container stacking competition - causing a total chaos in the yard. Cormac later felt bad for instantly dismissing Tai's way of doing things and ended up making amends with her.


Cormac is a very cheeky chugger and a bit of a jokester, who enjoys pulling small practical jokes on other chuggers, but he never takes his jokes too far and always tells the chugger if he has played one on them as well. He is very supportive and a hard worker to the point of stubbornness, managing the Drop and Load Yard with extreme precision and care. He takes his work very seriously and is quick to get annoyed when there is nothing for him to do - or if things at the Drop and Load Yard aren't done his way. However, while he takes great pride in his work and (somewhat justifiably) considers himself to be the best at it, he does mean well and always knows when it's time for him to swallow his pride.

Technical Details[]


Cormac appears to be based on a British Rail MPV (Multi-purpose vehicle), modified with forklift prongs.


Cormac is viridian with some thick yellow stripes. His bottom jaw, buffer beams, and cab roof are also yellow, and he has an orange siren light.
