Diesel 199 (D199), nicknamed "Old Reliable" and "Spamcan", is a rude Diesel engine.
D199 was built in the early 1960s and came on trial to Sodor in 1967 with another Diesel engine, 7101. D199 soon made himself an enemy of the steam engines when he claimed that "steam engines spoil our image", and was swiftly quieted by 7101 and Duck.
The next day, 199 ironically failed and had to be helped home by Henry. He was soon sent home in disgrace.
D199 was pompous and rude, and sided with the general belief amongst Diesels that steam engines are inferior to Diesel power.
D199 is based on a BR Class 46 "Peak" 1Co-Co1.
D199 is painted in the British Railway's "Rail Blue" livery with yellow warning panels.
