  • Class: LNER J15
  • Designer: T.W. Wordsdell
  • Builder: Stratford Works

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

Bio

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

Persona

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.

Basis

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

Livery

The Old Engine was painted in LNER mixed-traffic unlined black, but his paintwork was covered in dirt. He has "LNER" written on his tender side in yellow.

Trivia

  • 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.
