Eric is a mountain engine who was mentioned in a conversation between Culdee, Wilfred, and Ernest. According to them, Eric is "nice and quiet".


Eric was the last engine to be ordered by the Culdee Fell Railway and he was built at the Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works in Winterthur, Switzerland, in 1962 to a "super-heat" design. He arrived on Sodor in time to help ease the strain of the last two months of the season.


Eric is based on the Snowdon Mountain Railway's Eryri. Eryri has been taken out of service as of 2015. He is most likely going to be scrapped and not be rebuilt.


Eric is painted purple with orange lining.
