Characters

Although I don't really like the Thomas and Friends series anymore as a whole, due to being grown up, I still have happy memories of when I was still into the series. And I still like the engine prototypes the characters are based on.

In addition to the many characters of Thomas and Friends that I was fascinated by, one of my childhood hobbies was creating lots of my own fictional engine characters. Although most of them were one time appearance characters.

I made a story about them or I drew them, but that was it. A lot of them were forgotten over the years as a result. However I still have some scrapbooks of some of them, or copies of stories about them, so some of them are still remembered, even if they only made one appearance.

But here's a list of my "inner circle" of fictional engine characters. Some of these engine characters I created as a child, and some of them I created when I had already officially grown out of Thomas and Friends but wanted to reawaken the happy memories and times that I had enjoyed as a child.

I discovered the Fletcher Jennings Class C, LB&SCR E2 Class, LMS Fowler Class 3F, LNER Class A4, Bagnall 0-4-0ST, Midlander 4wDM, Hunslet Austerity, British Rail Class 08, BR Class 42 "Warship", and British Rail Class 17 because certain engines of Thomas and Friends - Skarloey, Thomas, Jinty, Spencer, Bill and Ben, Rusty, Wilbert, Diesel, 'Arry and Bert, and Splatter and Dodge, Diesel 10, and Derek - are based on these classes.

Although I have officially grown out of Thomas and Friends, I still haven't completely abandoned it permanently. This is partly due to my interest in characters, and my interest in locomotives. The rest of the classes that are featured here I discovered in 2010 while reading through this book of locomotives, with the exception of the Minerva Kerr Stuart "Victory" 0-6-0T, BR Class 03, and BR Class 20 which I discovered sometime in 2017. Enjoy! :D

Honny

Honny and his twin brother Ponny were the earliest fictional Thomas the Tank Engine characters that I can remember creating. They were created in 2002 when I was 6 or 7 if I remember correctly, and most of the fictional characters I created were one-time appearance characters back then, so it explains why Honny is one of the only characters I can remember from that long ago. It also explains why Honny has such a childish name. I never would have called him that if I had created him and his twin brother today.

Honny and Ponny are a duo of cheeky and troublesome tank engines who liked to play tricks on this well behaved crane. But they both meant well, really. And in spite of their troublesome ways, Honny and Ponny appeared to be friends, or became friends with the crane. I can't remember what the crane's name was. But his name definitely began with a "J". I think he might have been named Jayden, but I'm not sure. In 1968 Honny and Ponny were rescued from scrap while all the other engines of their basis weren't so lucky.

In 2017 I decided on Honny being a Minerva Kerr Stuart "Victory" 0-6-0T, although there are some differences between Honny and the other engines of his basis. A notable difference is that Honny is depicted as having a bunker similar in shape to Thomas' bunker. He is also shorter than most of the engines of his basis, as he is no bigger than Thomas. When I was very young, I paid no attention to how many wheels I drew on the engines. Although I probably don't still have the pictures, I do remember Honny and Ponny having ten wheels in one picture, and twelve wheels in another. Not very accurate, but I was probably too young to notice or give a damn about these inconsistencies.

Both twins are painted red, with black wheels, and have numbers. Honny is 99 and Ponny is 100. I used two sources of inspiration for Honny and Ponny. Obviously I got some inspiration from Bill and Ben. I also got some inspiration from Iggy and Ziggy, two crows who battled Huckleberry Hound in order to eat his corn.

Although the twins are identical, Honny's cheeks aren't usually as expressive and defined as Ponny's cheeks are when they smile. This is a trait that I adapted from Bill and Ben. In the earlier episodes, Ben usually wore a face mask that made his cheeks prominent on his face, whereas Bill didn't wear that face mask nearly as often. On close examination, Honny's grin may appear larger than Ponny's, though it is most likely due to the facial expressions they have. Sometime in 2009, Honny was given a brand new set of golden buffers.

Wilbur

Wilbur was a fictional Thomas the Tank Engine character that I created in April 2004. Though he only made two appearances in 2004. By the time I brought him back in 2010, I probably forgot exactly how I drew him the first time, though a lot had changed in 2004 and 2010, so it probably didn't matter. I'm pretty sure he was always a 0-6-0 tank engine, and he was definitely meant to be a side tank locomotive. I don't even think I gave him a number the first time, back in 2004. In 2010, I gave him the number 1.

In 2017 I decided on Wilbur being a LMS 3F "Jinty", although there are some differences between Wilbur and the other engines of his basis. A notable difference is that Wilbur is depicted as having an extra dome which is smaller than the first dome. He is also shorter than most of the engines of his basis, as he is no bigger than Thomas. Jinty is also a member of the LMS 3F "Jinty" class. Wilbur was inspired by Wilbert the Forest Engine, although he is a side tank engine, whereas Wilbert is a saddle tank engine. But the two of them are painted in blue livery with red lining and a black footplate, though as of 2010 Wilbur is painted a darker shade of blue than Wilbert.

Not that much is known about Wilbur's personality, as he has yet to be given a defined backstory. Although from what I can remember thinking of him, he was kind, sensible, and outgoing. In a story I wrote in 2004, Wilbur was capable of reaching the speed of 60 miles an hour. Though at the time, I didn't realise that certain other types of side tank locomotives were capable of reaching that speed. However Wilbur is still pretty fast in comparison to the other members of his class. The other members of his class can only reach 40 miles an hour. Sometime in 2010, Wilbur was given a brand new set of golden buffers.

Tenny

Tenny was a fictional Thomas the Tank Engine character that I created during the 2004 Christmas Holidays, so he would have been created sometime in January 2005. He made one appearance in January 2005, and another appearance in January 2006. Though the scrapbook that I drew him in in January 2006 is missing, it should be hidden among some of my stuff, though there's so much stuff, it will take some time to find it.

Though I'm not quite sure whether I've drawn him exactly how he was meant to be drawn, from what I can remember, he was a large pink diesel engine with what looks like a red saddle on his head, a red cab, and white footplates and buffer beams. Unlike most engines, his face is the same colour as his body. I have yet to confirm what Tenny's original number was when I drew him, if he even had a number, but in 2011 I think it was, he was given the number 2.

Sometime in 2011 it was, I think I confirmed that Tenny was meant to be a BR Class 17 but there were several major differences between him and a real engine of that class. This can be reconciled if it's assumed that he was rebuilt at some point after his initial creation date. It was eventually confirmed that he was. The real difference between him and the other engines of his basis were that instead of having his cab placed in the centre of his body, his cab is placed at the back of his body. Tenny's body was also higher than on most diesels of his basis.

When I drew him last, he definitely had doors on both sides of his front, as well as on both sides of his cab, which all other engines of his basis lacked. So he needed to have his basis redetermined as something else when I got the chance, although it wasn't exactly easy since I had yet to find a real basis that looked enough like Tenny for him to be based on. As of 2017, I have confirmed that he was originally built as a BR Class 17, and the reason he ended up looking so different was because he got rebuilt into a BR Class 20. Tellingly, his cab is still close to it's original shape.

Because Tenny has a single cab, this would have caused serious problems with visibility travelling nose first. However since he is an anthropomorphic locomotive with a face and can see the line ahead of him, it makes things much easier for his driver when driving him. Tenny made his debut in January 2005 where he accompanied a black pannier tank engine who's name I can't remember back to where he was meant to go, after he was discovered to have travelled to the wrong part of the island. This incident parodied the part where Lily gets on the wrong train in Thomas and the Magic Railroad, and Stacy Jones takes her back to Muffle Mountain which was where she was meant to go.

Tenny later made an appearance in a drawing that I drew in January 2006, but I have yet to find where exactly the missing scrapbook is. He wasn't brought back until 2009 and 2010. But since the scrapbook has been missing since the end of 2009, it's location will need to be found to help me determine what Tenny was meant to look like, although it can't be very inconsistent from my latest picture of him, since my drawings along with their details have improved a great deal since. As shown by his debut, Tenny is a rather kind and helpful diesel engine. Sometime in 2009, Tenny was given a brand new set of golden buffers.

Elliot

Main article: Elliot

Sir Elliot (better known simply as Elliot) was a fictional Thomas the Tank Engine character that I created near the end of Term 3 2005, so he would have been created sometime in September 2005. Elliot has made the most appearances in my fictional Thomas and Friends stories, out of all my fictional Thomas and Friends locomotive character creations. Even after I officially grew out of the Thomas and Friends series, my interest in locomotives and characters has prevented Elliot from fading away. He is my personal favourite fictional Thomas and Friends locomotive character as well.

Elliot is a vain mixed traffic steam tank locomotive who was brought to the Island of Sodor about three fifths of the way through the year 2005, to help pull fish trucks at the docks, the port, and the the fishing village, and to pull passenger trains such as the express. He was rewarded with two coaches names Katrina and Ashley (who look like Annie and Clarabel) after he helped a derailed Arthur back on to the track. Elliot was given his own branch line at some point during his time on the Island of Sodor. Despite this, Elliot is regarded as a "main line" engine, because of his job pulling heavier main line trains such as express trains, and regular heavy goods trains. Elliot's branch line is apparently located at the port somewhere near Duck's branch line, Arthur's branch line, and Brendam Docks.

Elliot is at times, rather arrogant and self-centered. In a way, he is very similar to James the Red Engine, in terms of his attitudes and habits. One obvious difference between James and Elliot, is that the former much prefers pulling coaches and that he thinks he is too good to pull trucks. The latter while not lavishing praise for pulling trucks as a whole, does enjoy pulling fish trucks to and from the port, the fishing village, and the docks. Even though Elliot does not like getting dirty, he apparently enjoys working at the fishing village more than he hates getting dirty. Like Arthur and Salty, Elliot doesn't mind the smell of fish.

Despite being a tank engine, Elliot has no problems mixing with tender engines, nor do they have problems mixing with him. Like James, Elliot thinks himself superior to others, and can shallow, boastful, and vain, particularly to those who appear old-fashioned, weak, slow, or dirty. Because of this, he often looks down on tank engines such as Thomas and Percy, both of whom he believes are common cheeky little tank engines. Elliot appears to be good at keeping a level head, and is usually unaffected by any rude comments the other engines may give him, although he is often quick to retaliate. While James tends to suffer from "self-importance", Elliot usually tends to suffer from "being cool" as well.

Elliot is based on a LB&SCR E2 Class tank locomotive much like Thomas the Tank Engine, although various parts of him were rebuilt overtime. While he hasn't undergone any physical changes outside receiving a belpaire firebox prior to his arrival on Sodor, a new Giesl ejector as of 2005, larger wheels with more prominent counterweights, and golden buffers as of 2009, Elliot seems to have changed a lot from his former self. For one thing LB&SCR E2 tank locomotives usually can only travel between 30 and 50 miles per hour, but since Elliot's rebuild, he is capable of reaching 90 miles an hour. It is presumed that Elliot has been given a newer engine as well, since he is now a mixed traffic engine who can pull both passenger trains and freight trains quite easily. Elliot is also quite strong as he is capable of pulling long fast passenger trains, including the express.

Elliot is painted red, with yellow lining, similar to how Thomas is painted blue, with red lining. Unlike most Sodor steam engines, Elliot has yellow trim instead of red. He has red wheels with yellow coupling rods, a yellow bunker, yellow chassis, and a yellow cab roof. Unlike Thomas, Elliot has a red circle with a yellow outline surrounding a small yellow number 14, instead of a big yellow number 1. Elliot also has his name painted on his sides, whereas Thomas does not.

Another difference between Thomas and Elliot's appearances, is that Thomas always wore a lamp on one of his lamp irons, and a tail lamp on his back. Elliot did not wear these unless they were being used, until 2013, when he began to wear them permanently. Unlike Thomas who was based off the later series of LB&SCR E2 tank locomotives, Elliot's built date is June 1913, which means that he must be based off the earlier series of LB&SCR E2 tank locomotives. It is presumed that he was remodelled to resemble the later series during one of his rebuilds.

Metey Barnett

Metey Barnett (usually Barnett for short) was a fictional Thomas the Tank Engine character that I created during the 2005 Christmas Holidays, either in late December 2005 or early January 2006. He made his debut in a fictional Thomas story that I wrote "Metey Diesel" which he appeared as the main antagonist. The story was about one page long, I often wrote one page stories back in 2005 when I was ten years old. Sometime at the beginning of the story the steam engines were holding a discussion after hearing that Barnett would be coming to the North Western Railway. Although the engines had never met Barnett, they had obviously been forewarned about his intentions, because they were rather fearful about his upcoming visit.

Based on what the Big City Engine had been telling Henry, Barnett was intending to take over the railway, and displace all the steam engines. It was rumoured that he was planning to have the steam engines rebuilt into diesels, and to have Thomas and Fergus scrapped on the spot. Unfortunately for Barnett, his visit to The Fat Controller's Railway was short lived after he attempted to antagonise James - which would have been successful if no one else had come to his aid - only to be shunted under the coal bunker towards the end of the story. Barnett was sent back to where he came from, so that he wouldn't cause any more disruption.

Barnett wasn't brought back until 2009 and 2010, except he didn't return to the Island of Sodor. Instead he appeared alongside some of my other fictional engine characters, several of them were ones that I had previously created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters. Barnett is unquestionably pompous, snobbish, and rude. Like many other diesels, he held no exception in believing that steam engines were inferior to diesels. In a way, he is shown to be very similar to D261 and D199.

Barnett also seemed to be rather dismissive of The Fat Controller's wishes, given that he tried to take over the railway with the intention of having the steam engines scrapped or rebuilt into diesel engines, despite it being clear that The Fat Controller had no intention of prohibiting steam engines from his railway. When Barnett's plans were foiled, The Fat Controller was not in the least bit sympathetic, and made it clear that he would not be invited back.

In 2010 I confirmed that Barnett was officially based on a BR Class 37, although I had always imagined him to be the same basis as D199, meaning that for the longest time I imagined him to be a BR Class 46. I didn't know much about the different classes before reading this book of locomotives in 2010, and when I saw a picture of a BR Class 37 locomotive, I was like "That's what kind of diesel Metey Barnett is".

Because the BR Class 37, BR Class 40, and BR Class 46 were roughly the same shape, I would not have figured out that they were all different types of diesels without research. Barnett is a BR Class 37, despite being painted to resemble a BR Class 46. Instead of being painted blue with yellow like D199, Barnett is painted grey with light grey. He also has a light grey face that is square shaped, just like D261. Sometime in 2009, Barnett was given a brand new set of golden buffers.

Andrew

Sir Anaru (better known as Andrew) was a fictional Thomas the Tank Engine character that I created in January 2007. He made several later appearances in the following years, including 2008-2011, and 2017. Andrew's basis was rather confusing, as he seemed to be based on different basis's on different occasions. In 2017 I decided I needed to settle on an individual basis in order to make him seem more realistic.

My earliest pictures of him depicted Andrew as a standard gauge Bagnall 0-4-0ST saddle tank locomotive, much like Bill and Ben, although he was smaller than they were. Instead of having two bunkers in-front of his cab, he had a rear bunker behind his cab. Andrew was rather small for a standard gauge locomotive, but he was bigger than a narrow-gauge locomotive. I tended to print out a head-on promo model of Skarloey and drew over his red livery with black to make a likeness of Andrew, which indicated that Andrew was also sometimes based on a narrow-gauge Fletcher Jennings Class C locomotive although he had a 0-4-0 wheel arrangement instead of a 0-4-2 wheel arrangement.

To cover up the confusion of Andrew's basis, I decided to make it so he was built as a narrow-gauge Fletcher Jennings Class locomotive in 1864 like Skarloey with a 0-4-0 wheel arrangement and no cab. Since Andrew's backstory depicted him to be an old engine, I had no problem with making Andrew as old as Skarloey, even though I never depicted Andrew to be that old, only that he was an old engine like Edward. I didn't originally know that there was such a gap between Skarloey's age, and Edward's age.

In 1867, Andrew received trailing wheels giving him a 0-4-2 wheel arrangement, and a cab. In 1937, Andrew was rebuilt into a standard gauge locomotive, regaining his old 0-4-0 wheel arrangement, but having most of his old parts replaced with ones of a Bagnall 0-4-0ST, making him a hybrid between his original basis and Bill and Ben's basis's. This caused issues with Andrew's ability to work, until he was eventually rebuilt into a Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST locomotive like Wilbert. He became much stronger in the process, and much faster, being able to reach 60 miles an hour, though the other engines of the Hunslet Austerity basis can only reach 35 miles an hour.

It remains questionable when exactly Andrew got the 0-6-0 wheel arrangement, since when he was brought to The Fat Controller's railway in 2007, he was capable of reaching 60 miles an hour, and resembled a Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST but with a 0-4-0 wheel arrangement. Sometime in 2010 and 2011, Andrew received his 0-6-0 wheel arrangement, and although he resembled a Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST, albeit being smaller than the other engines of his basis, his bunker was shaped very much like Duck and Oliver's bunkers, though otherwise structured similar to Percy's. Andrew is shown to be a very kind, sensible, and helpful engine, and quickly became good friends with Edward and BoCo after he arrived on The Fat Controller's railway. He was also good friends with Duck and Oliver, and quite a good relationship with Thomas and Percy.

Andrew is painted in jet-black livery, golden lining, white fancy lettering of "SIR ANARU" on his nameplate, with a red stripe underneath his nameplate, and very dark yellow wheels with golden coupling rods. He is shown to have a small widow's peak, unlike most engines. Andrew has red buffer beams and a red footplate, and dark grey on the roof of his cab. He gained new golden buffers sometime in 2009. He also has a golden whistle. Andrew has two black wheel arches with gold lining. He has one cylinder on each side behind his front wheels, which are the same shape as the cylinders Peter Sam has. Andrew's cylinders are black with two gold stripes. Although Andrew is painted black, he has stated to have been painted GWR Green at some point in his life, though it was short lived, and he got his old black livery back. Andrew has the number 2486 painted on his sides.

Iron Kelvin

Iron Kelvin (better known simply as Kelvin) was a fictional character that I created for my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010. The series consisted of some of the steam engines and diesels from Thomas and Friends, and some evil diesels from King's Cross that I had created myself. Among these evil diesels was Kelvin, who had once worked at King's Cross as a diesel shunter. Unlike most evil diesels who only look down on steam engines, Kelvin and his partners from King's Cross looked down all engines. Kelvin made his debut in 2008 where he enslaved D261, Peter Sam, and Sir Handel via mind control placed on them by the leader of the diesels from King's Cross.

Despite his prejudice against engines that weren't part of Kelvin's group of diesels from King's Cross, it should be noted that Kelvin did team up with Iron Bert at one point. Bert was once given a pair of silver wheels which increased his top speed massively. Kelvin was the only original character in Steamies, Diesels and Villains that was not scrapped in 2010 along with the rest of the series. He has become part of my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters. Kelvin is an evil diesel engine who plans to conquer the planet, and rid all the engines, and replace them with him and his fellow diesel engines, though his character was tamed overtime.

For my fictional locomotive series, to replace the diesel engines that Kelvin was in allegiance with, I created Iron Wyngryk and Killeroid to serve as Kelvin's henchmen. Wyngryk and Killeroid were inspired by Iron 'Arry and Diesel 10, though they are more villainous than them both. Kelvin is a British Rail Class 08 diesel shunter that was built between 1952 and 1962. Devious Diesel, 'Arry, Bert, Splatter and Dodge are also members of this class.

Kelvin looks very similar to Diesel in appearance, except that he has glaring red eyes, slanted eyebrows, and frequently wears a cross expression. He doesn't have ladders going up each side of his front like Diesel does. Kelvin also has a tiny black fringe covering the top of his forehead, though it appears to be made of steel, so it's not actually hair. It has thin grey vertical stripes on it. Kelvin's footplate is also red on the sides, and golden yellow on the top. As with all the engines that originated from the Steamies, Diesels, and Villains series, Kelvin has golden buffers. He has the name "Kelvin" on his sides, in apple green lettering, and red lining. Kelvin has apple green wheels with red on the outside, and red W's on them. He is painted in jet black livery.

The top and rear of Kelvin's cab is painted golden yellow and the bolts on his front are painted peacock. He has a circle on his head with two lines forming a plus like D261 does, only Kelvin's circle is golden yellow instead of black. The doors to Kelvin's cab are painted peacock. The remaining parts that I don't know the names of which are painted purple on Splatter are painted peacock on Kelvin, which the exception of the part on the top which is painted golden yellow instead. Although Kelvin didn't originally have a number, he was given the number 4 sometime in 2010 or 2011.

Iron Wyngryk

Iron Wyngryk (better known simply as Wyngryk) is a fictional character that I created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010. Wyngryk was created in 2010 as one of the sidekicks of Kelvin who was the only surviving character that originated from "Steamies, Diesels and Villains". The other character I created to be Kelvin's sidekick was Killeroid.

Wyngryk is a British Rail Class 08 diesel shunter that was built between 1952 and 1962. Devious Diesel, Iron 'Arry, Iron Bert, Splatter and Dodge are also members of this class. As a trio of villainous diesels with Kelvin and Killeroid, Wyngryk's calling in life is to take over the planet and melt down all the engines in his path, and build some new diesels in their place.

Wyngryk is generally portrayed to be more intelligent than Killeroid who is not necessarily stupid. He is the right hand man of Kelvin, and constantly gets into scraps with Killeroid because of this, though Wyngryk doesn't fear Killeroid in spite of the gigantic claw with spikes that Killeroid possesses. Probably because he knows that Killeroid has no intention of betraying Wyngryk and Kelvin his superiors.

Instead of being painted green-grey with yellow hazard stripes and a yellow cab like 'Arry and Bert, Wyngryk is painted dark brown with a very dark brown front and cab. He has black wheels, a crop of very dark brown hair with locks that taper off into spikes. The longest bits of his hair reach his large slanted and very dark brown eyebrows. Wyngryk has red eyes, prominent cheekbones, black wheels, golden buffers, a large freckle on his right cheek, and a large bony chin with very dark brown stubble. You can literally see the shape of the bones through the chin.

Wyngryk has his name painted on his sides in fancy black lettering and gold lining. Like Kelvin, he has a number painted on his sides. Wyngryk was given the number 6. He is rather arrogant, devious, and scheming, more or less the same as a lot of other diesel engines. He believes himself to be superior to steam engines, and even diesel engines minus himself, Kelvin, and Killeroid. It is unknown how he feels about electric engines, as he doesn't seem to acknowledge them. Letryko Eurostar is one obvious exception, who goes from island to island to race against engines, and taking over their island when they lose.

Killeroid

Killeroid is a fictional character that I created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010. Killeroid was created in 2010 as one of the sidekicks of Kelvin who was the only surviving character that originated from "Steamies, Diesels and Villains". The other character I created to be Kelvin's sidekick was Iron Wyngryk.

Killeroid is a BR Class 42 "Warship" diesel-hydraulic built on the 8th February 1961 with an added non-regulation hydraulic claw. All but two members of the class were named after Royal Navy nothing warships, so they, and the similar Class 43, were nicknamed "Warships". Two of these engines are preserved. Diesel 10 is also a member of this class. As a trio of villainous diesels with Kelvin and Wyngryk, Killeroid's calling in life is to take over the planet and melt down all the engines in his path, and build some new diesels in their place.

If anyone thinks that Diesel 10 is scary, they should wait until they see Killeroid, an even bigger diesel engine with an even bigger claw. Killeroid is painted dark grey with a dark grey and jet black claw, jet black wheels, jet black buffer beams and a jet black footplate. His buffer beams are red on his front and back, with rounded rectangular golden buffers. Instead of couplings, Killeroid is fitted with spikes.

He actually has spikes on many parts of his body, sixteen spikes on the top of his claw, three spikes on each of the upper sides of his claw, six spikes on the arm of his claw, one spike on the top of his rear, one spike on each of the upper sides of his rear, one spike on each of the upper sides of his front, sixty-four spikes on the back of his rear, two spikes on the front of his footplate, eight spikes on each of the sides of his footplate, thirty spikes on each underside of his footplate, and fourteen spikes on the underside of his body. 191 spikes in total.

Killeroid's windows are painted a light grey, and his doors are painted jet black. He has large thick black eyebrows that can easily give Diesel 10's eyebrows a run for their money. Killeroid has red eyes, a long nose that isn't pointy, big cream teeth with a gold tooth on the left side, and a large bony chin with black stubble. You can literally see the shape of the bones through the chin. Killeroid has his name printed on each of the front and back ends of his sides in red lettering. He also has his name written in black lettering on each of top front windows of his sides. Killeroid has the number 818 painted on his sides.

He is generally portrayed to be less intelligent than Wyngryk but is not necessarily stupid. Wyngryk is the right hand man of Kelvin, and constantly gets into scraps with Killeroid because of this, though Wyngryk doesn't fear Killeroid in spite of the gigantic claw with spikes that Killeroid possesses. Probably because he knows that Killeroid has no intention of betraying Wyngryk and Kelvin his superiors.

Killeroid is an evil, conniving, bullying, and raving diesel locomotive. He absolutely despises other engines and will go to any lengths to be rid of them. He is even larger and stronger than Diesel 10. I guess the inhabitants of Sodor, minus some of the fictional ones I've created, are pleased that they haven't come across Killeroid yet. He is described as being a murderous brutal looking monster on wheels. Killeroid isn't as childish as Diesel 10, as he doesn't call his claw Pinchy. Unlike Diesel 10, Killeroid's claw doesn't seem to have a mind of it's own, which probably explains why he doesn't talk to it.

Leander

Leander (as he is known on the Internet) is a fictional character that I created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Leander was created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). He was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

Leander fulfills Arthur's role in my fictional series as Elliot's best friend. Though Arthur would still keep that role in the fan fiction concerning Thomas and Friends, though I don't plan to do much more fan fiction stuff related to Thomas and Friends since I've officially matured and moved on to more mature stuff, though my interest in characters and locomotives remain.

When it comes to Leander's personality, he is well behaved and is above being naughty. He is a hard worker who does his best not to make a mess or have any accidents. Leander's main duties are shunting and pulling goods trains, such as fish trucks at the coastal village. Like Elliot, Arthur, and Salty, Leander doesn't mind the smell of fish.

While Leander is mainly a heavy goods engine, he does occasionally pull the express. Leander is quite obedient, cautious, and well-behaved, much like Arthur who served as the inspiration for Leander, personality wise. He tries to do everything to the best of his ability and aims to please in his work. Leander enjoys the sea air and the smell of fish, unlike most other engines who dislike the smell.

Leander is based on the preserved british steam locomotive, the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Jubilee Class 5690 Leander. He is painted in the LMS maroon livery with gold boiler bands and yellow lining, just like Arthur. The letters "LMS" are written on his tender in yellow, shadowed by red. Leander has golden buffers like the other fictional locomotive characters of my inner circle. He has maroon wheels, while the engine he is based on had dark brown ones.

Leander was originally going to have the exact same livery as the engine he is based on, with the brown wheels etc. the only difference being the golden buffers, and his name painted on his sides. Leander's real name isn't actually Leander. He was actually named after me, but I didn't want to reveal my real name, so he was billed as Leander because it's the name of the engine he's based on, so it fitted. Leander has the number 5690 painted on his sides like the engine he is based on.

Letryko Eurostar

Letryko Eurostar (or simply Eurostar) is a fictional character that I created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010. Eurostar was created in 2010 as the only electric locomotive in my series of fictional locomotives to hold significance to this day.

As Eurostar's name implies, he is a BR Class 373 "Eurostar" electric locomotive built sometime between 1992 and 1996. He is painted in the typical Eurostar colours - yellow, dark blue, and pale grey. Eurostar has the number 3220 painted on his sides. He is the self-proclaimed, fastest locomotive in the universe, who had never lost a single race in his entire life. His sole goal is to move from island to island, and challenge the engines on each island to a race, and take over the railways of each island when he won. It was not until he challenged several of the locomotives of the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (combining the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series) that he was handed over his first - and currently only - defeat in his whole life.

Although Eurostar did lose, it was only because he suffered from unexpected electrical problems just as he was about to win. He was capable of reaching the speed of 208.0 miles an hour; whereas Kelvin and Wyngryk could only reach the speed of 20 miles an hour; Ross could only reach 28.5 miles an hour; Honny and Ponny - 30-35 miles an hour; Stafford - 35-40 miles an hour; Sylvania - 45-55 miles an hour; Lumbrial - 50-60 miles an hour; Andrew and Wilbur - 60 miles an hour; Leander and Tenny - 70 miles an hour; Elliot, Killeroid, and Barnett - 90 miles an hour; Prince - 114 miles an hour; and Mallaroy - 126.4 miles an hour. Among the locomotives of the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway who accepted the challenge was Elliot and his sworn enemies Iron Kelvin, Iron Wyngryk, and Killeroid. Before they got to race against Eurostar, they were challenged by Honny, Ponny, Metey Barnett, and Tenny who also wanted to race against Eurostar for the fate of the railway.

Eurostar is without a doubt, a highly prideful, confident, arrogant, and selfish locomotive who doesn't seem to care about others and only thinks about himself. He intends to take over the universe and scrap anything that stands in his way. Eurostar will basically go to any lengths to have his way. He is also shown to be a sore loser. When Eurostar lost against the locomotives of the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway, he swore with rage that the locomotives of the railway hadn't seen the last of him. Letryko Eurostar's name "Letryko" is pronounced "Lectrico", implying that he is an electric locomotive.

Lumbrial

Lumbrial is a fictional character that I created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Lumbrial was created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). He was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

Lumbrial is based on the preserved british steam locomotive, the Highland Railway Jones Goods Class 103. So he was built in 1894 with the other fourteen members of his class. Sometime between 1929 and 1940, Lumbrial was rescued, whereas the other members of his class were eventually scrapped. He is painted in bright yellow livery with gold stripes, yellow wheels, and red buffer beams and footplate. Unlike the other members of his class, Lumbrial has golden buffers like the other fictional locomotive characters of my inner circle.

Lumbrial has a good heart and means well, even though he can be rather grumpy. When he was younger, Lumbrial was a tough and rather rude engine with bad manners and strong language. His attitude improved over the years, but it's not uncommon for him to lose his temper and overheat. Lumbrial has proven to be quite easy to wind up when he isn't in a good mood. He is also sometimes careless and makes rash decisions which can be rather problematic in his case.

In spite of his bad sides, Lumbrial is a confident and strong worker, like most engines. He was originally built for pulling goods trains, but can also pull passenger trains quite easily, meaning that he is a mixed traffic engine. Lumbrial is proud of his strength and is happy to put it to use, so while he may sometimes seem like he is putting his strength to use just for the sake of making him look good, these same traits can also result in a rather helpful engine who just wants others to think the best of him, in other words, a really useful engine.

Ross

Ross is a fictional character that I created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Ross was created in 2010 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). He was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

Ross was built in 1941 as a narrow-gauge Midlander 4wDM diesel locomotive, much like Rusty who Ross is partially inspired by. Ross was actually inspired by a similar diesel engine that I created in 2004 who was similar to Rusty except he had six wheels instead of four, was a standard-gauge locomotive instead of a narrow-gauge one, and was painted red instead of orange, or grey since Rusty was painted grey in the Railway Series of Thomas and Friends. That diesel was inspired by Rusty, and Ross is basically a recreation of that diesel engine, since he was a one-time appearance diesel that I drew in a picture, but the picture has long since been lost, and I have no idea what the diesel's name was.

At some point after Ross was built, he was changed into a standard-gauge locomotive with six wheels. This caused problems since he was built as a narrow-gauge locomotive with four wheels. These problems were ceased after Ross was sent to the works and was rebuilt into a British Rail Class 03 locomotive. His paintwork is very much like the paintwork Rusty has in the TV series of Thomas and Friends, except Ross is red instead of orange with white lining instead of yellow. The roof of his cab is also painted white, and he has white trim on his footplates which are painted red.

Ross bears some differences from the other BR Class 03 locomotives. His front and buffer beams are still shaped similar to Rusty's front and buffer beams. Ross' body and cab are also closer together in height than those of most BR Class 03 locomotives. He has the number 5 and his name painted on his sides in white lettering. Ross has golden buffers like the other fictional locomotive characters of my inner circle. His exhaust tube / compressor on his head also still looks like Rusty's.

Ross is a trusty, tame, friendly, and kind diesel engine. He is a dedicated worker who is often found pulling small passenger trains, or hauling and shunting trucks at the quarry. Ross is a very tolerant engine who is quite calm, caring, and quick-thinking. He is not one to misbehave, unlike certain other engines. So Ross is one of the better behaved engines on the railways he works on.

Prince

Prince is a fictional character that I created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Prince was created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). He was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

When it comes to Prince's personality, he is a hard worker who seldom grumbles about his work. He is a kind and helpful engine, but has proven himself to be rather vain and hot headed at times, which may occasionally get him into trouble. Prince is very proud of his speed, being capable of reaching 114 miles an hour. While he is shown to be good friends with Elliot and Leander, he doesn't take very well to Elliot's arrogance. Prince doesn't like the smell of fish, which is common among engines, but he does seem to be at least tolerant of the smell, and doesn't usually complain about it. Prince's main duties are pulling heavy goods trains, and fast express trains, though he seems to pull passenger trains more frequently than he pulls goods trains.

He is based on the preserved british steam locomotive, the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Princess Royal Class 6201 Princess Elizabeth. Prince is painted in the LMS maroon livery with gold boiler bands and yellow lining. His livery is similar to the livery Leander is painted in but redder and not as brown. The letters "LMS" are written on Prince's tender in yellow, shadowed by red. He has golden buffers like the other fictional locomotive characters of my inner circle. Prince has maroon wheels, while the engine he is based on had dark brown ones. He has the number 6201 painted on his sides like the engine he is based on.

Interestingly Prince is a male, while the engine he is based on is named after Elizabeth II and thus the engine he is based on is considered to be female, though the engine doesn't have a face. I chose to make him male and call him Prince because I wanted him and Leander to be the same gender, and since Leander was named after me - so his real name isn't actually Leander - and it was already decided that he would be male, I decided to make Prince male, rather than female and be called Princess.

Mallaroy

Mallaroy is a fictional character that I created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Mallaroy was created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). He was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

Mallaroy is one of the six surviving members of the LNER Class A4 locomotives. He is inspired by Mallard and Spencer from Thomas and Friends, both of which are also based on this class. Like the LNER Class A4 4468 Mallard that the three are based on, Mallaroy is one of the holders of the world record for the fastest steam locomotive. He is capable of reaching 126.4 miles an hour. The basis Mallaroy is based on also explains why he is named Mallaroy. Is hasn't been confirmed whether Mallaroy has a preferred shorter name, but I have thought of the name Roy as a possible shorter name. Though I haven't confirmed whether it is canonically used by him.

Mallaroy is painted metallic silver blue with black lining. He has black nameplates with his name in gold on the sides of his boiler. He has the number 4468 painted on his sides in gold numbers, and LNER on his tender in gold letters. Mallaroy has golden buffers like the other fictional locomotive characters of my inner circle. He has metallic silver blue wheels that match his metallic silver blue paint.

The other engines of the railway look up to Mallaroy as one of the holders of the record for the fastest speed of steam locomotives. But he is very arrogant and pompous and considers himself to be above doing menial duties such as shunting. These traits sometimes sour the respect that the other engines give him. Mallaroy's pompous behaviour can get on other engine's nerves, and he frequently looks down on other engines, particularly small engines who appear slow, weak, and dirty.

Very similar to Gordon, Mallaroy thinks that he should only pull coaches, and never misses an opportunity to complain, during rare occasions where he has to pull trucks. He despises getting his gleaming coat of metallic silver blue paint dirty which is one of the reasons why he dislikes pulling trains other than the express. Mallaroy does have a caring and nice side, but he very rarely shows it.

Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania (usually Sylvania for short) is a fictional character that I created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Sylvania was created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). She was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

Sylvania is one of the two female characters that I created for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, the other being Stafford. I decided to make them both female because of the abundance of male characters that I had created. Sylvania is based on the preserved Pennsylvania Railroad class L1 Railroad 520 locomotive. She is the largest engine of my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters because of this.

Sylvania is mostly seen pulling high speed goods trains, implying that she is very strong. She is one of the least outgoing members of the inner circle, not having a close relationship with many of the other engines, except Stafford. But it is implied that she is willing to work with other engines, because she wants to be a really useful engine, and one of the tickets to being a really useful engine is to work with other engines. Sylvania is painted in dark grey livery and has black wheels with light grey coupling rods. She has the number 520 painted on her sides in cream numbers, and Pennsylvania on her tender in cream letters.

Stafford

Stafford is a fictional character that I created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, many of which had previously appeared as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and one of which previously appeared in my fictional series "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" though the series ended as of early 2010.

Stafford was created in 2011 for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway (which combined the worlds of the locomotives created for my inner circle, the locomotives that were created as fictional Thomas and Friends characters, and Iron Kelvin that was created for the scrapped "Steamies, Diesels and Villains" fictional series). She was created because I wanted to make a series which consisted only of locomotive characters that I had created myself, rather than using a mixture of them and canon characters from Thomas and Friends, which I had officially grown out of.

Stafford is one of the two female characters that I created for my inner circle of fictional locomotive characters, the other being Pennsylvania. I decided to make them both female because of the abundance of male characters that I had created. Otherwise, I probably would have made Stafford male. She is based on the preserved North Stafford Railway (NSR) New L Class locomotive, hence her name.

All the members of Stafford's class entered the LMS stock upon foundation in 1923, although with the policy of standardisation, many NSR classes were prime targets for early scrapping due to the small size of the classes. All of them were withdrawn by the end of 1937. Stafford was rescued from scrap, while the other members of her class unfortunately did not survive to this day.

Stafford is painted in the NSR's Madder lake livery with straw lining, and NORTH STAFFORD lettering on her side tanks along with the company crest. She has the number 9 painted on her bunker, although the real engine she is based on had the number 2 on their bunker. Stafford is shown to be more outgoing than Pennsylvania though not necessarily the most outgoing of the engines on the New Zealand/Sodor crossover railway. Unlike some of the other engines on the railway, Stafford knows how to withstand Elliot's constant boasting of how splendid he thinks he is.

She has quite a tough personality, and it takes a lot for things to get to her. She isn't afraid to stand up to others either. Stafford is very different from Elliot in a lot of ways. The most obvious differences are that Elliot is shallow, boastful, vain, arrogant, and self-centered. Whereas Stafford on the other hand is selfless, team-oriented, and humble. Although she was primarily built as a goods engine, Stafford has proven herself to be capable of pulling passenger trains easily, becoming an ideal mixed traffic tank locomotive. Elliot is a mixed traffic tank locomotive as well, which shows that they are not all different.
