Hurricane is an upcoming character who will be introduced in Journey Beyond Sodor.
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 realizes they aren't quite what they seem. Hurricane and Frankie soon put Thomas to work and prevent him from leaving the Steelworks.
Hurricane is based on the GER Class A55 "decapod", an experimental tank engine with ten driving wheels. It was designed to prove that steam locomotives could compete with the emerging electric locomotives. It never entered regular service and was rebuilt to an 0-8-0 tender engine in 1908. It was later scrapped in 1913.
Hurricane is painted maroon, has a black running board, red lining and steam pipes. He has red and gold number and nameplates on either sides. His number is also painted in gold on his front buffer-beam.
