Trivia

  • Bessie appears to be based on a Ford Model AA fire engine which worked on the San Diego & Arizona Eastern Railroad with the registration M. W. 1003 and it is now preserved at the California State Railroad Museum.
  • There is also a wooden flatbed truck which can come in handy for the firefighters when they need to bring Mercury along for mountain rescues. The Pontypandy Flyer also uses the flatbed truck if Bessie is not required.
  • Elvis, Ellie, Arnold, Jerry Lee and Chief Fire Officer Boyce have yet to drive Bessie.
