What are the Chuggington Train Names?

Chuggington is an animated British television series aimed at toddlers and is full of wildly colorful characters. Most of which are some form of anthropomorphic train. It had a six-year hiatus but came back in June 2020. It primarily follows three trainee locomotives Wilson, Koko, and Brewster as they navigate their world.

The show focuses hard on values of friendship, honesty, listening, and other skills that children will need to learn as they grow. There are a lot of trains from across all six of the series, even if the show isn’t comprised entirely out of trains. Keep reading for more about all of them.

Young Trainees

The young trainees Wilson, Brewster, and Koko are the main characters of Chuggington.

Some technical details about Wilson:

  • Color(s): Red
  • Type: Diesel-electric
  • UK Voice(s): Morgan Overton (Series 1-3), Edward Sharpe (Series 4-5), Teddy West (Series 6)
  • US Voice(s): Jordan C. Reed

He’s lively, confident, friendly, and enthusiastic, but his ADHD gets him into trouble sometimes. Additionally, he has a good heart who tries hard even though he doesn’t understand his own special talents yet.

Some technical details about Brewster:

  • UK Voice(s): Charlie George (Series 1-3), Toby Davies (Series 4-5), Harry Reeve (Series 6)
  • US Voice(s): Miles J Harvey (Series 1-5), Jacks Dean (series 6)

He’s not afraid to ask questions if unsure about a given task but is also prone to picking up too much of a load. He is regarded as being extremely dependable and respectful.


Koko is one of the fastest Chuggers in Chuggington. She is also the lead singer of the “Rock ‘n’ Rollers” band she formed with Wilson and Brewster.

Some technical details about Koko:

  • Type: Electric locomotive
  • UK Voice(s): Imogen Bailey (Series 1–5), Alyssa Burton (Series 6)
  • US Voice(s): Brigid Harrington (Series 1–5), Madigan Kacmar (Series 6)

She’s a very adventurous Chugger who always wants to explore and challenge her friends. She does always mean well, even if she can be rather mischievous and challenging to her friends.


The non-advanced Chuggers are classified as trainees just like the protagonist trio, but they are not quite at their ranking.


Hoot is the Siamese twin of Toot but managed to separate during the journey to Lookout Point. His catchphrase with his sister is “Hoot and Toot are ready to scoot!”

Some technical details about Hoot:

  • Type: Diesel-electric
  • UK Voice(s): Tommy Romer Lee (Series 2–5), Beau Robertson (Series 6)
  • US Voice(s): Ben Hudson (Series 2–5), Ethan Cutillo (Series 6)

While both Hoot and Toot are kind and helpful, Hoot tends to be more gullible and a bit more dimwitted than his twin. This ends up with him being used by others. Thankfully, he stays forgiving and helpful despite this.


Toot is the Siamese twin of Hoot but managed to separate during the journey to Lookout Point. Her catchphrase with her brother is “Hoot and Toot are ready to scoot!”

Some technical details about Toot:

  • Type: Diesel-electric
  • UK Voice(s): Mihira Philip (Series 2–5), Matilda Majilton (Series 6)

She is more manipulative, greedy, and self-centered than her twin brother, often not thinking about the impact her actions have on those around her. She does argue quite a bit with her twin, but even when she manages to separate from him, still would rather be together.


Zephie is equipped with a scissor-lift trolley, making it so she can lift and rotate her cab in order to allow Eddie to work on things he usually would not be able to.

Some technical details about Zephie:

  • US Voice(s): Isabella Palmieri (Series 1-4), Lily Sanfelippo (Series 6)

She cannot pull heavy things well, so she ended up not participating in most of her training sessions she had with Hodge. She is kind, supportive, and encouraging with a lot of giggles to give. However, she’s also a bit flighty and oblivious despite being older than the protagonist trio.


Piper is a unique locomotive, as it was revealed by Old Puffer Pete that she runs on vegetable oil rather than other fuel sources like the others.

Some technical details about Piper:

  • Type: Oil-fired steam cab forward
  • UK Voice(s): Eve Bentley (Series 3–5), Faith Delaney (Series 6)

She’s young and mischievous, and her inexperience hinders her when she doesn’t take the time to think about her actions or what she is supposed to do be doing. However, she is capable of learning and does well when she does slow down to think.
