Bio

When Arthur first arrived on the Island, he was proud of his spotless record. However, Thomas played a trick on him, and caused him to crash into the back of Duck's goods train. However, he made up with Thomas and they are now firm friends.

Basis

Arthur is based on a LMS Ivatt Class 2MT 2-6-2T.

Persona

Arthur is a big tank engine who has never been naughty in his life. He was highly esteemed for his "spotless record" before he arrived on Sodor, never having made a mess or a fuss and never having caused an accident. His main duties were to shunt trucks and haul goods trains. However, after a jealous Thomas tricked Arthur into setting his standards too high with the trucks, his record did not stay as spotless as he had hoped. Arthur is very obedient, cautious, and well-behaved. He aims to please in his work and do everything as best he can. He now mainly runs the Fishing Route by the coastal village, a duty which Thomas was only all too grateful to be relieved from. Here, Arthur enjoys the sea air and the smell of the fish.

Livery

Arthur is painted LMS burgundy with gold boiler bands and yellow lining and "LMS" written on his side in yellow. His livery is inauthentic: if Arthur had been one of the ten 2MT tanks built for the LMS, he would have been painted postwar black with "LMS" written on his tanks.
