The First Red Engine
  • Configuration: Unknown

The First Red Engine lived at Tidmouth Sheds with Edward, Henry, Gordon, 98462 and 87546. It is unknown what happened to the engine afterwards.

Persona

It is implied that the engine, along with the four other engines, like to bully and tease Edward due to him being smaller and weaker then them.

Basis

Its basis is unknown, with no outside cylinders or motion. It looks a cross between Gordon and Henry in his old shape with a 4-6-0 wheel arrangement.

Livery

The Red Engine is painted in the NWR's red livery with yellow and black lining. He has red wheels and a black dome.

Appearances

Railway Series

Trivia

  • The character was created by Wilbert Awdry, but was never featured in any other stories for unknown reasons.

  • Class: L&YR Class 25
  • Builder: Horwich Works
  • Designer: George Hughes
  • Configuration: 2-6-0, originally 0-6-0

The Second Red Engine tried to push Henry out of a tunnel, but without success. It later appeared in Henry's Sneeze. It is unknown what happened to the engine following this event.

Persona

He seems to be of a helpful persona, as he tried to push Henry from the tunnel without fuss.

Basis

He is based on the L&YR Class 25 with an added pony truck and a Fowler tender, very much like James.

Livery

The Red Engine is painted in the NWR's red livery with yellow and black lining. He has red wheels and a red dome.

Appearances

Railway Series

Trivia

  • He was originally drawn to be James as a goof. However, children wrote to the Reverend asking why James was red before he got painted in the third book. The Reverend then decided that the Red Engine was a different character altogether.
  • In Henry the Green Engine, his dome is brass.
  • His role in The Sad Story of Henry was replaced by Thomas when the story was adapted into the television series.
