Trivia

  • Duke was the first engine to have a plastic coal tender, before all other tender engines were updated with it in 1999.
  • Duke's tender is designated "Duke's Coal Car" rather than "Duke's Tender", deviating from other tender engines released.
  • Duke was reintroduced in 2008 for the 2009 range as a DVD tie-in product, along with Smudger.
  • Duke's character card says that he is the oldest narrow gauge engine, despite the fact that Skarloey and Rheneas are older.
  • Interestingly, Some of Duke's earlier 2002 models had the ledge on the back, unlike most other 2002 models. He shares this trait with Bill and Ben.
