Paxton, nicknamed "Pax", is a young green diesel shunter on the North Western Railway. He works at the Blue Mountain Quarry and lives at Vicarstown Works.



Paxton is a young, gentle diesel who often works at the Blue Mountain Quarry and the Vicarstown Dieselworks. He is good-hearted and well meaning, but gullible, naïve, and easily misled. He also has a short attention span. He tends to be more of a follower than a leader and can sometimes find thinking for himself and making big decisions difficult. This may result in him being pressured into a situation he might not necessarily be comfortable with. However, if a friend is in trouble, Paxton will have the conscience and the self-assertion to do what he himself feels is right. As a result, the steam engines find that he is likeable and Paxton particularly looks up to Thomas at times. He also works alongside the narrow gauge engines frequently. However, Paxton can easily misjudge situations, misplace his trust in someone who might not have everyone's best interests at heart, and is a rather impressionable diesel, but his good nature will ultimately show him for who really wants to be.


Paxton is painted dark green with yellow lining. His traction rods and front bufferbeam are painted a rusty orange. His paint is chipped in places and shows signs of weathering.
