BioEdit

Delete was built in November 1947, and usually handled goods trains on the Other Railway. He usually had problems with his tubes, but that problem was never fully taken care of until much later. He made requent visits to Sodor, and the Fat Controller asked for a trial after he saw that he seemed a bit trouble.

Delete was nervous at first, but gradually grew used to the North Western Railway, and helped James a lot with goods on the Main Line. After a while, Delete proved his worth enough to stay on Sodor, and was given an overhaul and his tubes problem was resolved.

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.
