The Old Engine
  • Number: 1020
  • Class: J15
  • Designer: Alexander McDonnell
  • Builder: Stratford Works
  • Configuration: 0-6-0

"The Old Engine" is an unnamed LNER tender engine. He was built at Stratford Works by TW Worsdell.


When Toby was visiting a seaside branchline, he saw him struggling with a load and offered to help himself. The engine, grateful, told Toby about the festival.


Despite being dirty and badly maintained and suffering from steam leaks which made it hard for him to pull trains, the Old Engine seems to have a bit of an optimist inside him somewhere.


The Old Engine is based on a GER J15 0-6-0 goods tender engine.


The Old Engine was painted black, but his paintwork was tarnished by a covering of dirt. He has "LNER" written on his tender side in yellow.


Railway Series


  • The text in 'Toby's Seaside Holiday' states that this engine is younger than Toby. But the J15s were built from 1883-1913, and Toby was built in 1914. So this engine can't have been younger than Toby.
