|“||There are two ways of doing things: the Great Western way, or the wrong way.||„|
|~ Duck talking about the Great Western way|
Duck the Great Western Engine, also sometimes known as Montague, is a green Great Western pannier tank engine in The Railway Series and its televised spin-off Thomas & Friends.
Duck is a cheerful, busy, clever, reliable, loyal and wise engine that "does his work without fuss", and stands up to any bigger engine who tries to order him about. He runs his own Branch Line, called The Little Western, and is good friends with another Great Western engine called Oliver.
Duck is based off a Great Western 0-6-0 57xx pannier tank engine, one of the most numerous preserved class of steam locomotive in the UK.
|“|| What's your name? |
Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Duck. They say I waddle. I don't really sir, but I like Duck better than Montague.
Good. Duck it shall be.
