Mtambo is a Kenyan locomotive from Chuggington.
Mtambo is a double decker diesel and his job is to take holiday makers down Kahlville-Swahili Branch Line from Kahlville to Swahili for people to visit the seaside and Water resort. He knows a lot about animals because of travelling around the world so he has a lot of exciting stories of his travels. He sometimes helps Irving and the other shunting engines out with the recycling.
Mtambo is of a freelance design. He is not based on a specific prototype.
Diesel is painted in the British Railways' black livery. His livery originates from British Railways in the 1950s, during the time when all shunting engines were painted black. His side rods are black.
