Rail ROBEL work crane truck


Michael Quartey (UK)

Skylar is a Eurpoean rail crane truck who was introduced in Season 3. He is a cool crane chugger who has graduated from the teacher-training academy. He is teaching the trainees, to take over from Dunbar, who has retired teaching and spending some time traveling the world.


Skylar was sent to Chuggington because of Dunbar's temporary retirement. At first Brewster wasn't fond of Skylar because he missed Dunbar, whilst Wilson and Koko did. Soon Brewster got used to him. He regularly taught the trainees. After Dunbar's unexplained return Skylar quit teaching the Trainees. It is possible that he could just be teaching Hoot, Toot, and Piper. Whether he's teaching or not is unknown. Whatever he's doing, he's still working in Chuggington.


Skylar is based on a rail ROBEL work crane truck, commonly used in Europe.


  • Skylar must be able to switch crane grabbers because in Brewster's Crane Training it's a claw grabber but in Top Secret Koko it's a shovel grabber.
  • In German, he is called "Sascha".
  • His personality is inspired and based from African-American astronaut Victor J. Glover, who in real life worked on robotic cranes for NASA.
