Homer is an old poet electric engine who respects everyone and never gets competitive. He first appeared in the special Quest for the Crown when he and another electric engine named Bean came to Sodor for little while to help out the other engines. Spencer thought he looked very fast and challenged him to a race. But Homer politely said no. Spencer targeted Bean instead. Bean was very willing to do so and said yes! Surprisingly he won! Homer was not proud of his friend's ability and went crazy after that! He shoved Bean onto a boat and tried to kill Thomas. Thomas was not prepared and told Sir Topham Hatt about Homer. Hatt banned Homer from Sodor and tracked down Bean. When Bean was finally found he said that Homer was after King Godred's crown and wanted it for himself. Homer does not return in the film but but there is still 1 hr and 32 minutes left.
