Sodor: Reading Between the Lines, the Skarloey Railway bought two worn out Hunslet diesels from the National Coal Board and, using parts from both engines, constructed Fred. He was put into service in 1989 as a secondary diesel, and is used mainly for maintenance and engineering work.
It is assumed Fred is lazy and tries to stay out of work by pretending to be ill.
Fred is painted charcoal-black with yellow lining and white lettering.
Fred is based on
Alf, a Hunslet 0-4-0 diesel with a maximum speed of 9 mp/h working on the Talyllyn Railway.
