Background information[]

Old Puffer Pete is a fictional steam locomotive created by Sarah Ball and Simon Jowett.

Since his full introduction in the first series episode, Old Puffer Pete's Tour, Pete has been one of the most important recurring characters in the series.

Old Puffer Pete has no exact basis and is painted black and red with golden lining.

CGI model[]

In 2007, Old Puffer Pete was designed and modelled by Volume Studios in the 3D modelling software Sketchup during the production of the first series. The model was later exported to another software, Maya, for animation.[1]


  • Series 1:
    • He increases in size.
    • The slanted end of his cab is removed and he receives a coal bunker.
    • His boiler cap receives a lid.
  • Series 2:
    • He receives the new coupler and chugger plaque design.
    • His trailing trucks receive a separate chassis.
    • His two chassis now sit on two hinge joints.
    • The second set of rivets alongside his running board are moved closer to where his bunker is.
  • Series 3:
    • His smoke deflectors become static.
  • Discover Chuggington: All Aboard!:
    • His headlamps in the same design as Calley's beside his smoke deflectors become permanent.
    • The rust around his bodywork becomes more prominent.



  • Old Puffer Pete's completed model was modified prior to first series. Originally, the model had a slanted end of its cab and no coal bunker. The model's design was changed before Old Puffer Pete appeared in any episodes.
  • Old Puffer Pete's model originally only had one chassis and no hinge joints. As a result, the chassis became warped whenever Old Puffer Pete moved on his chassis.
