"I like to dig up, I like to dig down, I like to dig up treasure that's never been found!"
— Marion

Marion is a self-propelled steam shovel. She usually works at the China Clay Pits with Timothy, Bill and Ben.



Marion is very enthusiastic and likes to think of herself as well-informed and is happy to share her knowledge. She is very talkative and loves to tell stories of her discoveries. However, not all the engines prefer to stick around and hear her stories. She acts motherly to the three engines who work with her and, despite her enthusiastic demeanour, she can also be rather stern, especially when dealing with Bill and Ben's antics.


Marion is painted orange and light brown with yellow lining. She has her name painted on her sides in yellow.


  • She has a rock collection, which is kept in her shed.
