Pacific Flyer Railroad North American Streamlined Diesel Electric Locomotive Freight Train
Trev Diesel is a North American long sturdy streamlined diesel electric freight train that appears in Cars. After the Delinquent Road Hazards accidentally release Lightning McQueen from his trailer, he wakes up in the middle of the highway and swerves through traffic as he tries to find Mack. Spotting a trailer that looks like him, McQueen takes an exit, and starts heading towards it.
However, Trev is coming down the railroad tracks, honking his diesel train horn whistle, but Lightning refuses to stop and instead tries to beat him to the railroad crossing and just barely avoids being hit. However, Lightning soon discovers that the trailer is actually a Peterbilt, named Jerry Recycled Batteries, who grumpily drives away, criticizing McQueen for believing that he wasn't Mack.
Trev is a 1949 North American EMD F3 Trevithick Streamlined Electro-Diesel Electric Locomotive that is painted red and orange, with the Pacific Flyer logo painted in white across his sides.
Profiles and statistics
- "When Trev Diesel is pulling the North American long sturdy freight trains in order to be working for the North American railroad, the Pacific Flyer Railroad, Trev Diesel, has seen a lot of changes along side his tracks. He's witnessed the coming of the Interstate and the disappearance of many of the small towns he used to pass through, but he's still going strong. He still loves pulling a long haul across the North American desert at night. It's so peaceful -- just Trev, the full moon, and the jackalopes."
