Action Chugger is Chuggington's real life superhero always ready to help anyone who is in trouble. He is like a cross between Superman and the Thunderbirds! All of the other chuggers think he is great - he is like a celebrity in Chuggington. Action Chugger has even had films made all about his rescues.
He is based on a FS E414 Italian locomotive but he also looks similar to the German ICE high speed train. His overall shape, as well as the use of jet engines, is very reminiscent of the Bombardier "JetTrain" gas turbine locomotive that was demonstrated between 2000 and 2003 in the USA and Canada.
- Action Chugger is kind and has a lot of patience.
- He stars in Action Chugger Movies.
- A C's front coupler is not like other chuggers - his comes out from under himself. No-one really knows where his comes from.
- His catchphrase is "Chuggtastic!"
- In German he is called "Super-Lok", but in English this would mean "Super-Locomotive". Similarly, in the Hebrew dub he is referred to as גיבור הקטרים (Gibor HaKatarim), which in English means "Hero of the Locomotives".
- He is often admired by Brewster.
