Date of Birth
- June 20, 2002
After many years ago of absence Freddie returned to the Skarloey Railway. Although the reason for his absence is not stated, one can persume that Freddie was on loan to another railway or undergoing an extensive overhaul.
Freddie is based on Russell, a locomotive from the Welsh Highland Railway in North Wales.
Freddie is painted grey with black and red lining, and a brass dome. He has black nameplates and number plates with gold writing.

He was possibly going to appear in the Sixteenth Season but was not used for unknown reasons.
Freddie should be able to reappear in the eighteenth season in full CGI.

- "Wash Behind Your Buffers"
- Fearless Freddie is considered by fans to be the TV Series counterpart to Ivo Hugh from The Railway Series books, as they are both #7 on the Skarloey Railway, the main difference being Fearless Freddie being exclusive to the TV Series and Ivo Hugh being exclusive to The Railway Series books. Both engines, however, have their own Wooden Railway model.
- Freddie's theme is the Skarloey Railway Theme, which he shares with Skarloey, Rheneas, Sir Handel, Peter Sam, Rusty, Duncan, Duke, and Mighty Mac. Sometimes is the Season 9/12 Skarloey Railway Theme
