Oliver is a Great Western Engine, like Duck. He worked on the great western railway with his brakevan Toad until the decline of steam. Oliver was sent away to be scrapped, but he ran. He eventually ran out of coal and was found by diesels and sent back. All hope seemed lost until Douglas came one night and rescued him. Oliver was sent to work on The Little Western Branchline with Duck. At first, Oliver was very arrogant and the trucks pushed him into a turntable well. Oliver then became wise and cautious. He tought the trucks a lesson when he pulled S.C.Ruffey apart. Later, Oliver got bored of working so the Fat Controller sent him to take the mail run for a while. But on his first run, he went down the wrong line and crashed into an abondoned shed at an abondonded station. Oliver still works the branchline and not much is heard of him nowadays apart from crashing into a snowman.
