Thomas and Friends Ned
In Thomas and Friends, Ned is a clumsy but kind steam shovel.
In Thomas and Friends, Ned is very kind, but he can be described as "dopey". Despite all this, he puts in as much effort as possible every time he's called to action.
Ned works for the Sodor Construction Company and helps clear rubble and do some digging. His clumsiness gets him into trouble from time to time, he once knocked over a keystone on a bridge that nearly caused a serious accident for Thomas until Jack held the bridge up. His clumsiness ended up paying off as he demolished a massive building on accident that the Sodor Construction Company couldn't destroy, even with wrecking balls.
In Thomas and Friends, Ned is based on an Erie Steam Shovel with some liberties.

Model & TVS Background
In Thomas and Friends, Ned's model was created right before the start of season 6. His model was mostly made of plastic with a brass funnel and chassis, this led to a much lighter model than if they used all brass. 2 Servos were used to control up, down, and side to side eye movements.
