Personality

Biography

In Thomas and Friends' season 9 episode "Molly's Special Special" she comes to Sodor and is immediately laughed at by Emily for pulling an empty freight train. Thomas feels bad so he gets the trucks to be covered with a tarp to make the trucks look full, to Molly's delight. Later on, the tarp would be blown off in front of all the other engines, this leads to Molly feeling less important just like before. After realizing that all the other engines need empty trucks at the coaling plant she knew her job was important.

Molly would later make minor appearances, she would end up getting back at Emily for teasing her by poking fun at her for working with Whiff and garbage.
