The Foreign Engine (known as the Big City Engine in the Wooden Railway line) is a tender engine from the LMS built at Crewe in May 1934. He once stayed the night in Vicarstown with Gordon and Duck. When Gordon remembered a trip to King's Cross in his youth, the engine told him he went to Euston, and Duck replied he really went to Paddington. (In fact, all three were right, but that's another matter). The argument continued even after the engine had left the next day.
Basis The engine is based on a LMS "Patriot" 4-6-0.
The engine is painted dark green with red lining and grey wheels and cylinders. He presumably has a British Railways' crest on his Tender. The Wooden Railway model has an emblem on its tender with the letters BCE in red.
