Ivo Hugh is a red narrow gauge engine from The Island of Sodor.


Ivo Hugh is the youngest of the Skarloey Railway engines, and the newest to visit Crotoonia! A big, bulky engine with sidetanks, he's often put in charge of hauling heavy goods trains from the quarries (mainly Cliffstone Centre Quarry) to the stations and stops for delivery! Being a newer engine, he does rely on help from Skarloey and Rheneas to get work done, but he's well and truly proven himself with his freight haulage; he can pull twenty slate cars at a time!

Technical Details


Ivo Hugh is based on the railway's No.7 'Tom Rolt' which was rebuilt from an old Andrew Barclay well tank in 1991 and named after L.T.C Rolt, the founder of the Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society.


Ivo Hugh is painted red with blue and yellow lining. The number "7" is painted in a black circle in gold, and his name is painted on his side tanks in yellow.


  • He was actually created by the Rev. W. Awdry, who "never had time to write the story".
  • In the Railway Series, Ivo Hugh was originally numbered SR 7. For The Railways Of Crotoonia, however, this was changed to 11 so as not to clash with Freddie.
