Olwin is a British steam locomotive who is very wise and kind.
Olwin is the most motherly of all the Chuggington characters. Olwin likes to keep her paint work looking pristine and would rather not be asked to complete dirty tasks. She is happy to help the trainees but sometimes embarrasses them by calling them “little chugg-a-chuggs”. Olwin is a well respected engine and is always there when a chugger is in need of a ‘bumper’ to cry on!
Olwin is similar to a tenderless LNER Class A4 locomotive.
- Despite being based on one, Olwin was a tender engine, but now she is a tank engine, much like the Crown City Star engine from the Arthur episode; "Strangers on an Train". When she collects coal, it is deposited through an opening in her cab roof, and water is stored centrally in the boiler, similar to Speedy McAllister.
- Also, her basis is the same as Spencer's from Thomas & Friends.
- Olwin was the youngest steam locomotive until Piper entered the series.
- Her whistle sound is reused from the ship from Howl's Moving Castle.
- She doesn't enjoy jobs that involve getting dirty, and will stick to more cleaner duties when possible.
- It is possible that she may be a mixed-traffic engine as she was seen pulling passenger carriages in Brewster's Little Helper.
- In Czech and Polish, she is called Olga and in German, she is called Almut.
