Bio

Neil was built at the Neilson and Company Works in Glasgow, Scotland in 1856 and arrived on Sodor later that year. When he arrived, he worked for the Sodor and Mainland Railway with two other engines of his class.

He later helped Skarloey off a barge at the Kirk Ronan harbor and took him to his new home at Crovan's Gate.

Very little was known about Neil and what happened to him and his brothers, but there's speculation that they are still around and working on Sodor to this day.

Persona

Little was known about Neil's behavior, but according to Skarloey when he met him, Neil looked ugly, but was a very kind engine.

In Sudrian Stories, Neil is still a kind engine, but has a tendency to be grouchy and lose his temper. Working with Skye and Fergus on the Kirk Ronan Branch Line, he is a mixed traffic engine, pulling both coaches and trucks with ease. Despite his age, Neil refuses to be retired, and said he would not be purchased by Sir Robert Norramby when Fergus and BoCo discovered him in 2017. While a nice engine at heart, he has issues showing it at times, and it’s all due to one dark secret...

Basis

Neil is based on a Neilson 0-4-0 box tank engine.

Livery

Neil is painted dark green with "S & M 2" written on his tank sides in yellow.
