Salty is a diesel shunter who works at Brendam Docks.
Salty worked on an unnamed coastal railway before coming to Sodor. When Salty first arrived on Sodor, he was sent to work at a quarry, but missed the sea. However, he managed to cope with the trucks and fill in a big order for the Fat Controller, and was awarded by being sent to work at Brendam Docks.
Salty speaks in a pirates accent in using the terms "Ahoy!" and "Me hearty!". He is kind to both steam engines and diesel engines.
Salty is based on a BR Class 07.
Salty is painted crimson with pink warning stripes along his body, wasp stripes on his front and rear and yellow buffer beams with signs of rust. At the top of his forehead, he has the brim of a skipper's hat.
