Splatter and Dodge are a pair of twin diesel shunters that work at Upper Fausten Yards.
Splatter and Dodge like to think they're the toughest pair of engines in all of Crotoonia, plotting and scheming to make mischief while they work...when in fact, they aren't. The two are the biggest pair of bunglers you could wish for, constantly making a mess of things and landing themselves into trouble, thanks to their own schemes backfiring and preferring to laugh at others on the sidelines.
Both are based on a BR Class 08. Over seventy members of this class survive today in preservation, while around 100 remain in service on the national rail network. They were in fact the most successful shunting engines in the world, with 996 of them built.
Splatter is painted purple and grey while Dodge is painted olive and grey. Both are heavily weathered, and both have their names painted on their sides in white.
