  • 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.
