Kevin the Crane
(voiced by Kerry Shale) is a clumsy four-wheeled crane who works at the Sodor Steamworks. He is one of Thomas and Pooh's best friends. Kevin is kind-hearted and eager to give a helping hook for anyone. He lives at the Sodor Steamworks with Victor (whom he calls "boss"). He has a terrible habit of dropping parts and falling over, and his catchphrase "It was a slip of the hook!" has become so well-known by the engines that they can usually finish the line for him. He drives Victor mad, but always tries his best.
