Patrick, previously named Lord Harry and No. 6, is a mountain engine on the Culdee Fell Railway.

Bio

In 1960/1 two of the remaining engines in the railway's ageing fleet were in need of an overhaul. The decision was made to order three new and more powerful engines to assist in the ever increasing traffic. Lord Harry was the first to be built at the Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works in Winterthur, Switzerland, to a "super-heat" design, and arrived on the Culdee Fell Railway in March 1962 where he was named after the railway's chairman, Lord Harry Barrane.

Lord Harry was troublesome and frightened his coaches by taking risks. After he derailed at the Summit, Lord Harry had his name removed and was sent to the back of the shed. After he heard the tale of Godred, he asked for a second chance, and was given one as a lowly shunting engine. However, when a message came warning that some climbers needed help during a gale, No. 6 went to the rescue with "The Truck" and was fittingly renamed "Patrick" in honour of a climber who risked his life to help the others.

Persona

Lord Harry/Patrick was arrogant, pompous and reckless at first, but learned his lesson after his mountain rescue. Now, he only takes risks if absolutely necessary.

In Sudrian Stories, Patrick is an engine of class, he views himself as an important engine, and cares about cleanliness and organization more than anything. But, he still cares about getting the job done, and takes pride in what he does on a daily basis. Because of his arrogance, however, he often gets on the other engine's nerves, notably Wilfred. Despite how he can be a bit rude and pompous, Patrick means well, and really cares for his friends.

Basis

Lord Harry/Patrick is based on the Snowdon Mountain Railway's Padarn (formerly Sir Harmood).

Livery

Lord Harry/Patrick is painted purple with orange lining. The number "6" is painted on the sides and back of his cab in yellow and he has red nameplates, with his name in gold, on the sides of his tanks.

Appearances

He is set to appear in the second season of Sudrian Stories.
