Skarloey, a narrow gauge saddletank engine, is the oldest engine on the Skarloey Railway.
Skarloey was built in 1864, and brought to Sodor along with Rheneas. He was stubborn at first, and refused to cooperate until Mr. Bobby came in to help. He learned sense after that, and became much wiser over the next decades. Later, he was in need of repairs and returned to find the railway had changed a lot, such as new engines like Peter Sam, Sir Handel, Rusty, and Duncan.
Skarloey is the sage of the Skarloey Railway and is an old, faithful little engine. Although once full of enthusiasm and his own ideas in his youth, Skarloey is now one of the oldest engines on the Island. He is a calm-natured, quaint, and mature engine and may often try to guide or watch over less experienced narrow gauge engines in his firm but fair and friendly manner. He acts kindly to engines and passengers alike and always enjoys a gentle, smooth journey through the woods by the lakeside and stopping at all the gates and stiles he remembers so well.
Skarloey is painted red with white and gold lining.
