Hurricane is a large tank engine that works at the Mainland Steelworks.

Bio

On his trip to the Mainland, Thomas discovers a strange place called the Steelworks, where he befriends two mysterious engines named Hurricane and Frankie. However, he realises they aren't quite what they seem. Hurricane and Frankie soon put Thomas to work and prevent him from leaving the Steelworks.

Basis

Hurricane is based on the GER Class A55 "Decapod", an experimental tank engine named so for it's ten driving wheels. It was designed to prove that steam locomotives could compete with emerging electric locomotives. It never entered regular service and was rebuilt to an 0-8-0 tender engine in 1906, being assigned to haul coal trains for GER's March district, remaining the only eight-coupled steam locomotive to work on GER. It was later scrapped in 1913.

Livery

Hurricane is painted reddish brown with a black running board, red lining, steam pipes and wheels. He has brass and red nameplates and numbers on either side. He also has his number painted on his front buffer beam.

Trivia

  • Hurricane shares Trevor's CGI series whistle sound.
  • While Hurricane isn't one of the experimental engines Thomas meets en-route to the Steelworks, his basis was an experiment in real-life.
  • Unlike his real-life basis, Hurricane's last four driving wheels are not connected to the front six, therefore making him an 0-6-4-0. This was done so he could navigate the tight bends in the Steelworks. Despite this, his four rear driving wheels still have side-rods on them.
