Bertram, nicknamed "The Old Warrior" for his bravery, is an old narrow-gauge engine who worked in a quarry on the far side of the island.

Bio

Bertram used to work in the mines with the other "little engines" in a remote part of Sodor. His fate was unknown to many after the mine's closure, and it was assumed he was left to rust. He remained at the mine until it was rediscovered years later.

Over time, he became legendary; many knowing of the "old warrior ghost" haunting the mine. However, Toby found him whilst watching over the quarry one night, and has since befriended him. He now works at the restored mines, taking passengers to the fairground within.

Persona

Not much is known about Bertram's personality, however it is said that he is very brave.

Basis

Bertram is based on Prince of the Ffestiniog Railway, like Duke.

Livery

Bertram is painted dark brown with red lining and has two brown plaques on either side of his saddletank with his name written in gold.

Appearances

Television series

He also appeared in the fifth season song, Percy's Seaside Trip.

Trivia

  • According to Britt Allcroft, Bertram was supposed to be a tank engine, but financial difficulty in building a new model made them repaint Duke's model with Smudger's face.
  • The ERTL and some TrackMaster models have his name spelt as "Bertrum".
  • The ERTL Bertram prototype had Duke's face.
  • Bertram's Wooden Railway depicts him as a tank engine.
