Character: Henry the Green Engine
Henry was built around 1920 from plans stolen from Sir Nigel Gresley and was something like a cross between a GNR/LNER Class A1 and a GNR C1 Atlantic. He was sold to the North Western Railway in 1948, and had trucks of Welsh coal to make him steam properly.
Henry was wrecked by Diesel in 1961, and was rebuilt as an LMS Stanier Black 5 in the same year. In 1982, Emily fell in love with him. Diesel wanted to destroy Emily, without success.
In 2005, he was involved in the Sodor Crisis. He defeated Diesel, Arry and Bert with Gordon, Donald and Douglas at the garbage yards. In 2006, he had a mishap with dynamite, and a second one closed down the dynamite factory.
Henry is generally well-behaved, and is at heart a hard worker, but his frequent bouts of illness hinder his work.
Henry is sometimes frightened of Emily, who is madly in love with him, leading to unwanted teasing from James. Henry and Diesel get into arguments, but there are moments when the two have gotten along.
Henry cares for the other steam engines and good diesels and will do anything to help out.
