Arrived on Sodor;

June 1957

Bio

In Adventures on Rails he arrived in 1957, and told lies about James, Henry, and Gordon causing Duck to be sent away. However, he was sent away due to telling lies about Henry. He came back in 1961, and totally failed to redeem himself. In New Friends, Old Enemies, it is revealed he realised his mistake and realised he too, could be heading for the end. So, he snuck into Sodor with the help of 'Arry and Bert, apologised, and is now a Really Useful Engine, though he still is cheeky and a bit troublesome.

Persona​

Diesel is, in essence, the average pantomime villain. He is oily, malicious, devious, scheming, and full of ideas to get revenge. It appears Diesel has a good side in him, but one would still have to look deep to find it. He does want to be a really useful engine, however, since his arrival, he has given Diesels a bad reputation. He is also very proud to be the first Diesel on Sodor.

Livery

He is painted BR black all over, red bufferbeam, and silver side-rods.
