A blue tank engine made an appearance in the book, The Monster Under the Shed. It was not named.
This engine was always ready to help. One night, a stationmaster asked him to get a coach that was left behind. The engine went to get it, but when the weather turned bad, he had to sleep in an old shed. Later, he woke up to a noise and when he opened his eyes, he saw fingers reaching for him from under the shed. He was chased out of the shed by a monster and was never seen again.
The tank engine's basis is unknown, however, he slightly resembles the LSWR 0298 Beattie.
The tank engine is painted blue with red lining.
