Sigrid of Arlesdale is a diesel who works on the Arlesdale Railway.
Sigrid of Arlesdale was designed as a 2-C-2 Diesel/Hydraulic locomotive and was built at Severn Lamb in Alcester, England in 1969 with a Ford 4 cylinder engine, which was later replaced with a 6 cylinder Perkins from plans made by the Small Controller and Ivan Farrier. Sigrid is one of four diesel locomotives on the Arlesdale Railway and was named after the Sudrian heroine from the eleventh century who secured the defeat of the Norman Invasion in 1094.
Sigrid of Arlesdale is always stabled for the night at Arlesdale ready for the service train which takes employees to their places of work first thing in the morning. She spends the rest of the day at Arlesburgh in by no means inactive standby duty.
Sigrid of Arlesdale is painted in a two-tone blue livery: B.R. Diesel loco blue with a light blue band.
Sigrid of Arlesdale was only mentioned in The Island of Sodor: Its People, History and Railways.
