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.

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.
   
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.

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.
