Koko and the Speed Delivery Team
Koko takes her wheels to the rails as her training moves to Chuggington's Speed Fleet.
For Koko, it's all about using her best strengths and talents as a high speed engine.
Armed with her turbo boosters, Koko is excited to perfect her raceway abilities and deliveries of parts, passengers and parcels as the fastest trainee in Chuggington! Her challenges will involve concentration, consideration and time keeping. Koko is mentored by new character, Hanzo.

Introducing Zack and the Chuggineers
Zack joins Chuggington to head up the Chuggineers. This foreman is organised, hard-working and extremely safety conscious, making him the perfect leader of the Chuggineer crew and mentor to Brewster. Joined by his fellow team members Tyne and Fletch, this engineering team are responsible for all the heavy lifting, loading and building of bridges, tunnels, stations as well as laying track and making repairs.
Series 4 also sees the introduction of Hanzo, the fastest train in Chuggington! Mentor to Koko, Hanzo is sleek, streamlined and has a photographic memory. He believes there is no greater honour than transporting passengers quickly, but always safely, to their destination. Respectful, dedicated and precise, Hanzo encourages fellow Speed Fleet chuggers to be the best they can through rigorous practice. As well as always extremely punctual.
Pre-schoolers can also look forward to some brand new destinations including the Working Wheels Yard manned by Dunbar, where the trainees start and finish their day – refuel, clean and ready for action! Old Puffer Pete is in charge of the Drop and Load Freight Yard, the central distribution point for all things coming in to and out of Chuggington. While Rocky Ridge Quarry, the source for mining and building materials, is run by Speedy McAllister. Other new destinations include City Station – where all tracks meet. Emery and Decka are found here working alongside Hanzo and Koko. As the fastest train in Chuggington, Hanzo needs somewhere to train and he and Koko can often be found turbo booster training with high speed practice runs at the Chugasonic Speedway.
