Ashima is a brightly-coloured Indian tank locomotive and the deuteragonist of Thomas & Friends: The Great Race.


Ashima is usually found working on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway in Southern India, where the steep incline makes the track very dangerous and difficult to climb. So it’s no wonder that a small tank engine like Ashima shows no fear. Beautifully crafted with hand painted decal Ashima’s a fun, feisty and likable engine who is more than happy to help out wherever needed.


Ashima is based on the Nilgiri Mountain Railway X class. She is based off of the oil-burning version of the engine.


Ashima is painted pink with white lining, has her wheels and bufferbeam painted a dark blue, and has several bright green, white and orange patterns on her.
