Chuggington is a children's TV series. Its episodes were produced by Ludorum PLC.
In the fictional town of Chuggington are young novice railway anthropomorphic locomotives ('trainees') Koko, Wilson, Brewster, Hoot, Toot and Piper. The trainees learn the value of loyal friendship, telling the truth, listening carefully, persisting under adversity, completing tasks, resolving conflict without violence, and similar values. The locomotives, called "Chuggers", are intelligent, empathetic, independent and somewhat self-directed. They have mobile facial and body features. Chuggers have no drivers (yet some have opening crew doors). Chuggers regularly interact with other humans such as passengers and maintenance crews. The town of Chuggington has a central area of large modern buildings. Side-by-side railway tunnels coloured red, blue, yellow, green under the town centre lead to the outside world. Countryside settings include a farm, a safari park, and a quarry. A ‘Chugston Hotel’ is mentioned. "Old Chuggington", an abandoned old town overgrown with wild vegetation, is visited.
