Rusty is a friendly, calm and caring diesel who was built in 1957 by Ruston and Hornsby. He is used for maintenance work and motive power in case of emergency or breakdown. Despite his rust-colour (black in the Railway Series), Rusty's name is a portmanteau of Ruston and Hornsby. He is based on the Talyllyn Railway's "Midlander".
