Murdoch is a strong tender engine who usually pulls goods trains to the Other Railway.

Bio

Murdoch came to the Island to help out with the heavy goods trains. He was first annoyed by the noise the engines made, and longed for some peace and quiet. The next day, he was taking a goods train through the countryside and was enjoying the peace and quiet until some sheep ran over his line, and made a lot of noise. After that, he has enjoyed Harvey and Salty's company at the Sheds.

Basis

Murdoch is based on a BR Standard 9F.

Persona

Murdoch is as shy as he is strong, as he is actually a gentle giant. He can often be found seeking peace and quiet, away from the bustle of the yards and the Docks. He enjoys long hauls through the countryside and, although he can get short of patience and a little annoyed if he does not get some alone time, he can be quite a reserved engine. Although he can be an independent worker, Murdoch is often content to join in, help, and offer advice where he deems it worthy, but, despite being hard to miss due his defining strength and size, he will not jump to put himself at the centre of attention.

Livery

Murdoch is painted orange with green and red lining. He has smoke deflectors, on which he wears red nameplates with gold lettering.
