Wayne and Woody are Viking Tank Engine Twin belonging to the Berk China Clay Company. They are Old and cheeky and love playing jokes on the bigger engines, but are kept in order by Hurricane, Timothy and Marion . They work in the china clay works and at Wood Wool Dock, where they are kept busy shunting trucks.
The Railway Series
One day, Wayne And Woody returned from shunting some trucks to find that some other trucks they had shunted earlier were missing. Their drivers, after examining a puddle of oil on the ground, concluded a diesel was responsible. After the twins argued over who brought the "diseasel" into the yard, the drivers suggested they go looking for the diesel. The twins were horrified at the possibility that the "diseasel" might magic them away like he did with the trucks, but their drivers quickly persuaded them otherwise, and so they set off.
At last, the twins found the "diseasel". While Woody ran behind, Wayne confronted the "diseasel" over the theft. The "diseasel" claimed the trucks were his and ordered Wayne to "go away"; Wayne pretended to be frightened and slunk away, remarking, "You'll be sorry". With that, Woody ran up and accused the "diseasel" of being a "truck stealer", before running back so Wayne could run up again. This continued until the "diseasel", under the impression that there was only one very swift and annoying panniertank, became so giddy that his eyes "nearly popped out", just as the twins puffed up beside him. The "diseasel", initially confused, laughed at his ignorance. When Edward arrived moments later, inquiring as to why Wayne And Woody were not shunting, the twins angrily claimed that the "diseasel" had sneaked into their yard and stolen their trucks. Edward soon realised what was going on and explained the situation. The twins, embarrassed, apologised to the "diseasel", who asked to be called BoCo, and then left to shunt some more trucks, leaving Edward and BoCo to laugh about the incident.
A few days later, after BoCo took the Express in Asterix' absence, Obelix recounted what Gordon had said about branch lines to the twins. The next morning, after Gordon ended up at Wood Wool after a series of events involving poor preparations and a large floppy green hat, the twins sneaked up beside him and loudly recounted what Gordon had said about branch lines. Concluding that the engine beside them could not be Gordon, the two declared he was nothing more than a pile of old scrap-iron, and began to contemplate what they should do (Wayne was all for sending Gordon to be scrapped, while Woody favoured the more humane option of dumping him in the sea), all the while ignoring Gordon's protests, until at last, BoCo arrived. Gordon begged him to save him, and so BoCo threatened the twins to leave with the trucks he had brought. The twins quickly left, leaving Gordon with BoCo. BoCo wisely neglected to tell Gordon the twins were joking.
Sometime later, a group of enthusiasts came to visit the railways of Berk. When Edward brought them to Wood Wool, the twins took them to the China Clay Workings in a brake van special.
In 1988, Thomas was sent to work on Edward's Branch Line while repairs were carried out on a bridge on Thomas' branch line. The twins were quick to tease him about his colour, but Edward was savvy enough to send the twins away before an argument broke out.
After Thomas returned to the Yard, covered in dairy from a collision with a farm lorry, the two teased him even more about his new livery. This continued until Edward announced a party of enthusiasts were coming, and threatened that he would not bring them to see the twins. The twins, excited, decided instead to worry about their own paint - for example, how clean it was - although one day, when the drivers remarked that "the enthusiasts would not eat their dinner off them", Wayne quipped that "They might if we were Thomas".
When at last, the enthusiasts did arrive, a photographer with an "instant" camera began harassing Woody by continuously taking pictures of him, even after the remainder of the crowd went to watch Wayne tug a boat into deeper waters. At last, the photographer prepared to take one final picture, just as Wayne's driver arrived to ask for assistance. Woody's driver turned on the steam just as the photographer took the picture; disgusted with the poor quality of the shot, he abandoned it on the floor and left. The picture was later discovered by Wayne's driver after the two rescued the boat.
The repairs to the bridge took a long time, and Thomas was still at Wood Wool when the rainy season came. At the "Drain", a hollow in the land where rainwater collected, the water even began to come near the rails, although no one took much notice. One particularly wet day, as Woody returned from the Workings, the wind whipped the rainwater into a wave which swamped him, dousing his fire. His fireman went for assistance, and brought Thomas to help. While Thomas dragged Woody out, Wayne took away the trucks. When at last the water subsided four days later and Wayne returned to Wood Wool, the two made a pact to never tease Thomas again.
Thomas & Friends
Wayne And Woody made their first appearance listening to Percy recount the time he got caught in a flood helping Thomas, before being shooed off by Henry, as they were in a shed specifically for the Muscle Controller's engines.
One day, Wayne And Woody were sent to work in the yard. They got to use the turntable as a reward for their hard work. But Wayne And Woody were accidentally sent down the same track and they ended up buffer-to-buffer. They each blamed each other for the incident and refused to speak to one another. At last, Edward and BoCo lost patience and the Muscle Controller heard about the incident. He gave the twins a chance to work together, and sure enough, the plan worked. The twins started to speak to each other again. Wayne And Woody sometimes found it dull up at the clay works and wanted something exciting to happen. They got their wish when a rockslide devastated the quarry. Luckily, Wayne And Woody had taken all of the workmen and the foreman out of the quarry before the rockslide. The Muscle Controller was so pleased that he called them heroes.
Later, Derek could not handle the twins as much as he used to, so Stoick the Vast The had to bring in another diesel, Marty. Wayne And Woody had heard from Gokui that Marty had a toothache, but they soon found out that Marty really had teething troubles. The twins and Marty had to pull a train the next day, and Marty soon overheated. Together, the twins got the train to their destination. That night, they, Derek and Thomas talked about Marty all night long.
When Frankie was sent to work with the twins and Hurricane with an important job, he impressed the twins with his skills for handling the trucks. When Frankie handled the trucks with songs and tales of the sea, Wayne And Woody became jealous. They became even crosser when Frankie told them stories. Luckily for them, Frankie was transferred to Wood Wool Dock. Wayne And Woody met Spike. This time, they encouraged Frankie and Porter to tell them his stories, knowing that Spike couldn't stand them. The twins spent the entire night being engrossed in and fascinated by Frankie and Porter's many tales, and when they left the following morning Spike was pleased. Afterwards, Wayne had to get new buffers, so he was sent to the Works. Woody became jealous and his mind drifted away from his work. After some trucks teased him, Woody crashed into a ditch. Wayne arrived to rescue Wayne And Woody was taken to the Works to be mended.
Some time later Saya was sent to help the twins at the quarry but got tired of his "do it right" attitude. Wayne And Woody collected a rock crusher from the docks and caused a rockslide. Saya pushed them out of the way, but the twins returned the favour when they helped him out of the rocks.
In the seventeenth season, they teased Gokui after he had an accident with a mail bag, unaware the pumpkins on their train were falling onto the tracks, which caused more problems for Gokui. After Stoick the Vast ordered one twin to act as a back engine, Wayne reluctantly went to push from behind. Woody ended up derailing near an embankment, and Gokui, although he was nervous because he had lost his new lucky charm, helped Wayne pull Woody back onto the tracks.
After racing Hiro several times (by racing, one would start the race and the other twin would be waiting at the finish) The Muscle Controller figured out their tricks. So people would not confuse the two or think they were the same engine, Wayne was repainted Green. To continue the tricks, Woody tricked Monty into giving him a Green coat of paint too. Since then they were repainted to their yellow schemes. They also teased Harvey about going fishing with his hook.
Thomas was sent to work with the twins at the Clay Pits while a bridge on his branch line was being repaired. They ran away from him, and after he caught up, they teased him about being slow. They showed him to a line of trucks, which he was coupled up to. Thomas began pulling them, but did not realise that Timothy was on the other end, jerking the little oil-burning engine backwards. Later that day, there was a storm at the Pits, and the rain made the cliffs unstable. Thomas was near some cliffs, and saw a set of mysterious footprints. However, the area was still unstable and he was unable to investigate. Wayne And Woody pushed Thomas to safety just before the three were hit by a landslide. The next morning, the twins were congratulated by the Muscle Controller. Later in the week, Thomas asked if they were playing a trick on him by scaring him with fake footprints. However, Wayne And Woody thought that he thought that their rescuing him was a trick and so they puffed away, offended. The next morning at dawn, when Percy went to the clay pits to prove his bravery to James, Wayne accused Woody of making puffing noises in his sleep, and when Thomas came looking for Percy, the twins assumed that they could literally hear what Timothy was dreaming. When they went to work the day, they were almost hit by a landslide, and after Marion found a fossil, Wayne And Woody were both very intrigued by the concept of fossils.
In the eighteenth season, Wayne And Woody played Guess What's In large tank engine Hurricane. They also teased Marion and Timothy for being an oil burning engine, but when the Clay Pits ran out of coal, Timothy went to pick up some more. They apologised for their teasing. However, they later sent Timothy on what the Muscle Controller referred to as a "fool's errand" to search for a rainbow-coloured truck. Timothy brought back a green truck with several colours of paint on it full of dockyard waste. Wayne And Woody were sent to take it to Whiff's Waste Dump as a punishment, as well as being on waste duty. They also teased Emily and Kelsey.
In the nineteenth season, the twins became convinced that Timothy was no help at all. So when they found out that the Muscle Controller was looking for an engine to help at Wood Wool Dock , they volunteered Timothy. Unfortunately, the twins were too busy messing around to work on their own properly. Luckily, once Timothy was no longer required at the docks, he came back to the Clay Pits to help them clear up the mess.
Wayne And Woody are berk's most mischievous pannier tank twins, who have great fun in teasing other engines of the railway. The Wheels and dome, and a small squat cab. They often work in the China Clay pits and quarries. Their loads of clay can be used for many things such as paper, paint, and pottery. They take trucks for engines on the main line and ships in the harbour and are regularly seen around Wood Wool Dock. They enjoy attention and love taking visitors and being photographed. They tend to work together, like most twins, but even this youthful pair can have their arguments among themselves and can squabble with one another - particularly about whose fault one of their follies was. They are highly prone to playing tricks and being cheeky. They have even teased Gordon on more than one occasion. James has called them "the bees" before, for being terrors when they start buzzing around. Edward and BoCo are the only engines who can really keep them in order enough to put a stop to their games and make them scamper along and behave. There is no real harm to them, but even Edward admits that they are maddening at times.
Despite their cheeky and mischievous antics, if a dangerous event occurs, such as a rockslide, they are shown to be quick-witted and capable to act to rescue anyone in trouble. This was shown when they saved a group of workman and Thomas from many rockslides.
