"Fearless" Freddie is an old Warhorse engine.
After many years of absence Freddie returned to the Skarloey Railway. Although the reason for his absence is not stated, one can presume that Freddie was either on loan to another railway or undergoing an extensive overhaul.
Upon returning home, Freddie challenged Rheneas and Skarloey to a series of races up and down the mountain. After realizing that he wasn't as strong as he once was, Freddie used his knowledge of the mountain routes and shortcuts to secure victories. However, when his cheating placed Rheneas in danger, Freddie was forced to put his knowledge to better use.
Freddie is competitive, but has since learned his lesson. He is now well respected by the younger engines on the Skarloey Railway.
BasisEditFreddie is based on Russell, a locomotive from the Welsh Highland Railway in North Wales.
