Splatter and Dodge are two bumbling shunters who are Diesel 10's sidekicks. They work at the Sodor Dieselworks under P.T. Boomer.


Splatter and Dodge were built in the mid-90's to work on the Other Railway as shunters in the scrapyards. They quickly fell in with the "wrong crowd", including the malevolent Diesel 10. They caused much trouble around the railway, along with the rest of Diesel 10's gang. When Diesel 10's right-hand men, D199 and The Diesel, were caught trying to scrap two of Sodor's engines, and bought by Sir Topham Hatt to work on the North Western Railway, Splatter and Dodge were picked by Diesel 10 to replace the two as his right-hand men.

When Diesel 10, Splatter and Dodge were secretly bought by the North Western Railway to help out at the Dieselworks, the three diesels quickly assumed control of the Dieselworks from Den and Dart, who had heard tales of the villainous diesels and quickly succumbed to the diesels. The three diesels aided Norman in his infamous "Fireworks Incident" attempt, which was secretly stopped by Paxton.

Following this, Splatter and Dodge were split up, with Splatter sent to work at the Sodor sawmill with Henry (where he attempted to sabotage Henry's train, which he failed miserably at, and was involved in a when Henry's runaway train crashed into him), and Dodge sent to work on Thomas' s branchline (where he was able to sabotage Percy's train, and narrowly avoided a terrible crash). After this, the Fat Controller considered sending Splatter and Dodge away due to their troublemaking. However, he decided against his better judgement, and decided to give them a second chance, sending them back to the Dieselworks 

Splatter and Dodge currently reside and work at the Sodor Dieselworks under P.T. Boomer's command along with several other diesels, including Diesel, Dennis, Norman, Paxton, Den, Dart, and their old friends Diesel 199 and Diesel 261, as well as Diesel 10, who leads them in evil schemes and orders them around the Dieselworks. However, the two lazy diesels are sometimes called upon by the Fat Controller to do odd jobs around Sodor.


Splatter and Dodge are both very simple-minded, awkward, and clumsy diesels. They tend to banter and often make a mess of things. Sir Topham Hatt and the other diesels they hang around with can barely stand the sight of them, and the only reason the other diesels tolerate them is because they are Diesel 10's right-hand men. Splatter is the more talkative and impulsive of the pair, while Dodge is more intelligent and scheming. The two can never work quietly, and always have to be the center of attention, whether it be causing an accident or being in one themselves, they always enjoy being paid attention to, since they are very insecure diesels.
