The First Three

"Stepney's a match for any diesel, besides his controller will take care of him."
"He's a brae engine fur aw 'at! fancy fightin' his way ben aw those Diesels just tae see us!
Percy and Douglas, Bluebells of England, Stepney the "Bluebell" Engine

The First Three

The first three diesels appeared in the fourth illustration of "Bluebells of England" looking at Stepney.

The first one was coloured green and cream and had a yellow face. He resembles a BR Class 31 Brush Type 2 A1A-A1A diesel-electric. 31120 is another member of this class. If looked at closely, his number seems to be D701. His headcode is "4F12". The second was brown, and resembles a BR Class 52 "Western" C-C diesel-hydraulic. All locomotives of this class were given two-word names, the first word being "Western" and thus the type became known as Westerns. The last was coloured green all over, and resembles a BR Class 40 1Co-Co1. The Diesel and Old Stuck-Up are members of this class also. It is also seen that this diesel's number is D782.

The Last Three

"We stayed there for days, with Diesels baying and growling like hounds. I was very frightened!"
— Oliver, Escape, Enterprising Engines

The Last Three

The last three appeared in the fourth illustration of "Escape" alongside a signalbox near an old quarry branch where Oliver, Isabel and Toad briefly hid to escape scrap.

The first diesel painted yellow and black "hazard" stripes and appeared to be based on a Class 08. Unlike most Class 08 featured in the Railway Series and the Television series, it's face appeared to be descending from his cab, rather than his front end. The second diesel was painted in British Rail "Rail Blue" livery with large yellow warning panels, and appeared to be based on a BR Class 28. BoCo and D5705 are also members of this class. Upon closer inspection of the main line going away from the signalbox, another Diesel engine can be seen in the background.
