There were two other engines who worked on the Sodor and Mainland Railway with Neil.


According to The Island of Sodor: Its People, History and Railways, there were three 0-4-0T engines - one of which was Neil - with open cabs and square tanks that operated on the Sodor and Mainland Railway from 1856 until the line went bankrupt. They were used for different jobs on Sodor. It is unknown if they were named.

The locomotives were likely scrapped after the line went bankrupt in 1910.


The engines are based on Neilson 0-4-0 box tanks, a simple and robust class of engines built in Glasgow, Scotland and sold all over the world.


They were painted dark green with "S & M 1" and "S & M 3" written on their side tanks in yellow.
