Bio

Adventures on Rails

He was built in 1914 and lived at Great Yarmouth Docks, Norfolk with his brothers, and later worked on an unnamed tramway line in East Angila. He took trucks from farms and factories but was later overrided by lorries, but he never had an accident. After it was found for it to be illegal on quarry tramroads, he was brought to help on the Ffarquhar Branch in 1951. 

Livery

He is painted NWR brown with blue side-plates, gray cowcatchers, and olive frames. He has a yellow '7' on his side with a red border. He previously was painted brown with gray cowcatchers and black side-plates saying GER/LNER on the BR logo.

Persona

Toby was old but hardworking and knew enough about running a branch line to justify running Thomas' with Thomas and Daisy after Percy's accident with the trucks. He is also savvy enough to control the trucks. However, his advanced age and design means that he is weaker than the other engines.
