Neville is a black tender engine.


The engines did not like Neville at first. Although he was kind and friendly, Neville had the misfortune of looking like a diesel. Thomas saw him with 'Arry and Bert and soon a rumour spread that he was planning to bump the steam engines. Luckily, the rumour was rectified and Thomas befriended Neville after rescuing him from a broken viaduct.


Neville is a SR Bulleid 01.


Neville is a steam engine, whose square body may cause others to look at him as having Diesel-like qualities. Neville is gentlemanly, highly enthusiastic, and kind, if a little naive. Neville never holds a grudge, but can be easily hurt by unkind comments or not being accepted by others who judge him only by his appearance. Otherwise, he is bubbly, ready to pull together, and happy to make new friends. In Thomas' Sodor Adventures, he's also scared of scrap, which he claims "is a reflex" of his.


Neville is painted in the British Railway's plain unlined black livery without the BR logo.




  • Neville's whistle sound is one half-step higher in pitch than Oliver's from the third season, which is actually Gordon's whistle at a higher pitch. It was also reused later in the series for the Flying Scotsman's whistle.
