Bio

Delete was built in November 1947 and for testing, he was to shunt trucks at King's Cross. However, little did he know that he had a leak, and made him struggle, especially against expiremental Diesel shunters.

However, he was brought to the North Western Railway for a time in late 1948 for needed help in several areas. At first, he thought he'd never prove himself to be a Really Useful Engine, but learned that all engines make mistakes. He was given a new coat of paint. He was later had to rescue James who was going down Gordon's Hill a full speed. He also talked too much about his history. He found the importance of whistles the hard way, and got overflowed with water. He almost became a submarine, and had two days of good and bad luck. Much to James' dismay, he had to double-head a train which almost turned into a disaster because of James' laziness. He was one of the few engines who made their way through the dark after a Blackout. Quite soon, he previous leak had become a problem, and was sent for repairs. The Fat Controller looked back at all his work, dedication, and adventures and misadventures, and decided he was the one.

By 1953, work on the Mystic River Traction Railway was rising so Delete was brought in to help. The Fat Controller had decided he was the one that would 'fit in' to the Mystic River Traction Railway.

In 1955, he had decided to come back to Sodor, but, he nearly got scrapped whilst coming back. Later, he had an accident, and was in the works for a while. Later, in 1962 he met David, but did not get along well, until a very unfortunent accident.

He works on the Main Line, usually handling most of the goods trains on the line, but also works stopping passenger service, and ocassionally the Express.
