Bio

The engines did not like Neville at first. Although he was kind and friendly, Neville had the misfortune of looking like a Diesel. Thomas saw him with 'Arry and Bert and soon a rumour spread that he was planning to bump the steam engines. Luckily, the rumour was rectified and Thomas befriended Neville after rescuing him from a broken viaduct.

Despite his gentleness, Neville has acted a bit cheeky and once laughed at Emily for working with Whiff.

Sometime later, Neville told Thomas and Percy about the job of collecting the Sodor Brass Band.

Persona

Neville is a steam engine, whose square body may cause others to look at him as having Diesel-like qualities. Upon his arrival, after being seen with 'Arry and Bert, who were actually teasing him, Neville was the topic of a rumour regarding him being friends with the Diesels and being horrid to steam engines, despite his jolly greetings to the engines. Luckily, the rumours were quickly seen for what they were and Neville's true personality was allowed to shine through. Neville is gentlemanly, highly enthusiastic, and kind, if a little naive. Neville never holds a grudge, but can be easily hurt by unkind comments or not being accepted by others who judge him only by his appearance. Otherwise, he is bubbly, ready to pull together, and happy to make new friends.

Basis

Neville is an SR Bulleid Q1 locomotive, which were often referred to as "ugly ducklings". The specific engine Neville is based on (33010) was scrapped in 1964.

Livery

Neville is painted in the British Railway's plain unlined black livery without the BR logo. He has the number 33010.

Trivia

  • In some descriptions of Thomas and the New Engine, Neville is described as actually being a Diesel.
  • In the Story Library book, magazine stories and merchandise, Neville is incorrectly depicted with spoked driving wheels. His prototype, the Bulleid Q1s were built with "Bulleid-Firth-Brown" driving wheels.
  • Neville has the same whistle sound as Oliver did in the third season.
