“Rubbish! I'm up-to-date, that's all. I can go twice your speed in perfect safety!”
―Lord Harry to Culdee, Mountain Engines
Patrick, previously named Lord Harry and No. 6, is a narrow gauge mountain-climbing engine working on the Culdee Fell Railway.

Biography

The Railway Series

In 1960/1 two of the remaining engines in the railway's ageing fleet were in need of an overhaul. The decision was made to order three new and more powerful engines to assist in the ever increasing traffic. Lord Harry was the first to be built at the Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works in Winterthur, Switzerland, to a "super-heat" design, and arrived on the Culdee Fell Railway in March 1962 where he was named after the railway's chairman, Lord Harry Barrane.

Lord Harry was troublesome and frightened his coaches by taking risks. After he derailed at the Summit, Lord Harry had his name removed and was sent to the back of the shed. After he heard the tale of Godred, he asked for a second chance, and was given one as a lowly shunting engine. However, when a message came warning that some climbers needed help during a gale, No. 6 went to the rescue with "The Truck" and was fittingly renamed "Patrick" in honour of a climber who risked his life to help the others.

Personality

Patrick was arrogant, pompous and reckless at first, but learned his lesson after his mountain rescue. Now, he only takes risks if absolutely necessary.

Technical Details

Basis

Patrick is based on the Snowdon Mountain Railway's No.6 Padarn (formerly Sir Harmood, after the chairman of the railway). Padarn was built at the Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1922.

Livery

Patrick is painted purple with orange lining. The number "6" is painted on the sides and back of his cab in yellow and he has red nameplates, with his name in gold, on the sides of his tanks.

Appearances

Trivia

  • Even though he was renamed, the merchandise lines still called him Lord Harry.
  • The 1979 annual incorrectly refers to Lord Harry as "Sir Harry".
  • Like most of mountain engines, Patrick is equipped with a face at each end.
