|11||Jack is the friendliest front loader the island has ever seen. He wants to be very useful, but is so anxious he tries to do the other machine's jobs. Jack loves his job and is so eager to please that he often takes on tasks he probably should not do. Despite a couple of accidents, he proved to be brave when he saved Thomas from disaster.|
|12||Alfie is an excavator who makes even the toughest job in the quarry look easy. He makes the hardest job seem like play. He is friendly, helpful and loves to do all the dirty work. His favorite expression is "more dirt means more fun". Alfie likes to spin around like a top, but he never gets dizzy. He also has his own enthusiasm to help The Pack.|
|14||Oliver is a kind and wise old excavator who keeps an eye on the other members of the construction crew. He is capable of switching between different tools, including a bucket, a chisel for digging, a scissor claw and a wrecking ball for demolition. Oliver is good-mannered and hard-working, and never complains about his work. He often is assigned to do the jobs that Jack wants to do. Oliver likes to be really useful and reliable too.|
|15||Max is a devious and troublesome dump truck. He has a twin called Monty and together they cause all kinds of problems at the construction sites. They will sometimes bully other members of their team and can cause havoc by the reckless way they work. They frequently misunderstand one another, which creates a whole heap of trouble for the Pack.|
|16||Monty is a devious and troublesome dump truck. He has a twin called Max and together they cause all kinds of problems at the construction sites. When Max and Monty stir up trouble, it's Kelly and Miss Jenny to stand in their spots! However when he is not with his twin, Monty is a hard worker and states that he has hauled more loads in less time than anyone else!|
- On the Packard Construction & Co. sign, silhouettes of Ned, Byron, and Kelly can be seen.
- The official website, as well as various magazine articles and file facts, state that the Horrid Lorries were "especially built to work at Sodor Construction Company". It is therefore possible that they may have been originally intended to be a part of the Pack.
- The magazine story, Jack Helps Out, suggests that there are more diggers working for the Sodor Construction Company.
- According to Phil Fehrle in an interview with SiF, all known Pack members had to have two digit numbers in-order for the audience to feel that the company and the machines had been around for a while. They did not plan for any other members, as they only designed and built enough characters for twenty-six episodes.
