Bio in the Railway Series

Before coming to the Island of Sodor, Thomas worked alongside Boxhill for the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway. During his visit to the National Railway Museum, Thomas was thrilled to see Boxhill again and it is mentioned that they knew each other in the old days. Boxhill is now preserved as part of the National Collection at the Museum.

Boxhill in real life

Boxhill is a London, Brighton & South Coast Railway A1 0-6-0 "Terrier" tank engine. Unlike Stepney, he was one of the Terriers who was not rebuilt as an A1X, which was D.E. Marsh's design to increase the power of the original locomotives. He was converted to a 2-4-0T in March 1905 for auto-train trials and was restored to an 0-6-0T in 1913.

Boxhill was withdrawn in August 1946, later preserved by National Railway Museum and restored to the LBSC livery. Boxhill retained his original boiler, although he received a new funnel from the Southern Railway.

Livery

Boxhill is painted in the "Improved Engine Green" livery of the LBSCR.
