Bio

Rex used to work on an unnamed line in England and was transferred to Sodor around 1967 along with Mike and Bert. He has suffered traction problems, but this has since been cured. Once, he was transporting hay bales on trucks and collided with some hay bales that had come loose from a farmer's tractor. Bert and Mike rescued him and their railway began to gain recognition.

Persona

Rex is a playful green miniature engine with a strong sense of humour. He is a hard worker, and is the natural leader of the little railway engines (in spite of the fact that Mike prefers to think he’s the leader). Rex is very proud of his railway and a great friend to the other engines, but he can’t help teasing Mike to stop him getting too full of himself. Most of the time Mike manages to return the banter, but sometimes he gets a little wound up. Luckily Rex is very good at helping Mike see the funny side again. He sometimes has problems with traction.

Livery

Rex is painted NWR green with red and yellow lining, a brass dome, green wheels, red nameplates with gold writing mounted each side of his smokebox and "Arlesdale" written in gold on his tender.
