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.

But anyway, here's a list of some of the engine characters from Thomas and Friends, their basis's, when they were built, and how fast they have been reported to go. Enjoy! :D

References:

  1. This is just a fan-made name for The Second Red Engine which I gave him since it's the name of his designer. He does not have an actual name, nor has it been confirmed whether he even has a gender.
  2. The maximum speed that Thomas is able to go is debatable, as some sources say that his basis can reach a maximum of 30-40 miles an hour, while other sources say that it can reach a maximum of 40-50 miles an hour.
  3. It is implied that Percy was built in 1900 at the latest. However his real life basis was originally built in 1897.
  4. It is implied that Sir Handel was built in 1904. However his real life basis was originally built in 1878.
  5. It is implied that Peter Sam was built in 1920. However his real life basis wasn't built until 1921.
  6. It is implied that Culdee was built around 1900. However his real life basis was originally built in 1896.
  7. This is the average speed that Culdee's basis is known to travel at. This may not reflect his actual top speed. There is some support that his basis can reach 15 miles an hour.
  8. 8.0 8.1 The maximum speed that the Bagnall 0-4-0ST class is able to go is uncertain. Though it is presumed that the locomotive would at least have been able to reach 15-20 miles per hour.
  9. It is implied that Duke was built in 1879 at the latest. However his real life basis was originally built in 1864. Both Skarloey and Rheneas are implied to be older than Duke, though Rheneas' basis is younger than Duke's.
  10. The Railway Series book Jock the New Engine implies that Frank was built around 1967. However his real life basis was originally built in 1929, and rebuilt in 1931 and 1984. Frank is based on the 1931 rebuilt version of this basis.
  11. The Railway Series book New Little Engine implies that Ivo Hugh was built in 1996. However his real life basis was originally built in 1949, and rebuilt in 1991. Ivo Hugh is based on the rebuilt version of this basis.
  12. It is implied that Bertram was built in 1879 at the latest. However his real life basis was originally built in 1864. Both Skarloey and Rheneas are implied to be older than Bertram, though Rheneas' basis is younger than Bertram's.
  13. This is just a fan-made character which I created sometime during Term 3 2005, probably sometime in September if I remember correctly. Elliot isn't actually a canon Thomas character.
  14. The maximum speed that the LB&SCR E2 class is able to go is debatable, as some sources say that it can reach a maximum of 30-40 miles an hour, while other sources say that it can reach a maximum of 40-50 miles an hour.
