But their selfishness got him into trouble, as one day when didn't like the sharp bend on the main line, with their screeching sound, causing them to yell at a level crossing and insulted the railway, When Edward left a station the coaches held their brakes on and the rest of the Journey remained very difficult for Edward so that when he arrived at the final station, BoCo noticed that he was worn out and Beverly and Jennifer continued to insult him. Eventually as the days went by, Edward tried his best to ignore the coaches, but became more worn out and eventually his couplings have to be replaced. Donald was sent to do Edward's work but unlike Edward is very easily irritated by the coaches. On the Journey Back Donald was irritated that he didn't concentrate on what he was doing, taking the bend to fast leading to the coaches come off the rails. Beverly and Jennifer were scolded severely by Sir Topham Hatt, and banished home to the the Mainland in disgrace, and to this day, nobody ever really trusts them because of their arrogant attitudes, not like it would matter, as their embarrassing incident, cost them their reputations, and are a laughing stock to every engine, railway staff, and passenger alike, leaving Beverly and Jennifer humiliated and miserable, even though their pompousness still gets them into trouble on a regular basis.

Technical Details

Basis

Beverly and Jennifer are based on a pair of bogie coaches (i.e. each coach is supported on a pair of four-wheeled bogies or "trucks"). As currently illustrated, they appear similar to non-corridor suburban coaches operated by the LMS. In the 2019 annual, Stephen Patton implies the pair were likely built in the early twentieth century on the Mainland and that they were possibly six-wheeled designs.

Livery

Beverely and Jennifer are painted in the British Rail standard coach livery; Rail Blue with pearl window surrounds and grey rooftops.

Persona

Beverly and Jennifer are rude, snooty and vulgar. They do not like steam engines, and treated Edward and Donald/Adam with extreme disrespect. They are also very concerned about their image, which is another reason they hate steam engines.
