Bio

Bertram used to work in the mines with the other "little engines" in a remote part of Sodor. His fate was unknown to many after the mine's closure, and it was assumed he was left to rust. He remained at the mine until it was rediscovered years later.

Over time, he became legendary; many knowing of the "old warrior ghost" haunting the mine. However, Toby found him whilst watching over the quarry one night, and has since befriended him. He now works at the restored mines, taking passengers to the fairground within.

Persona

Bertram is an old engine who works at the restored mine taking passengers to the fairground that is at the mine. He is considered incredibly brave. When Toby first saw him, he thought Bertram was a ghost. Since they have met, Bertram and Toby have become good friends. If there are any ghosts there, they certainly make the place seem very happy.

In Sudrian Stories, Bertram is much more fleshed out as a Cockney-accented adventurer with a knack for storytelling. He is often the first to volunteer for exciting jobs, and often wishes he could explore beyond the island of Sodor, with his dream to visit the arid land of Australia, something the other engines think is a horrible idea. Dubbed 'The Old Warrior' by railway staff for unknown reasons, he would rather keep it a mystery. Since the other engines who worked on his line were all scrapped, and nearly all the staff have since passed, it's unlikely it will ever be revealed.

Livery

Bertram is painted dark brown with red lining and has two brown plaques on either side of his saddletank with his name written in gold.
