Olwin is a steam locomotive who is very wise and kind.
Olwin is the most motherly of all the Chuggington characters. Olwin likes to keep her paint work looking pristine and would rather not be asked to complete dirty tasks. She is happy to help the trainees but sometimes embarrasses them by calling them “little chugg-a-chuggs”. Olwin is a well respected engine and is always there when a chugger is in need of a ‘bumper’ to cry on!
Olwin is similar to an LNER Class A4, minus the tender.
- Despite being based on one, Olwin herself does not have a tender. When she collects coal, it is deposited through an opening in her cab roof, and water is stored centrally in the boiler.
- Olwin was the youngest steam locomotive until Piper entered the series.
- She doesn't enjoy jobs that involve getting dirty, and will stick to more cleaner duties when possible.
- It is possible that she may be a mixed-traffic engine as she once made a cameo pulling passenger carriages.
