Bertram, nicknamed "the Old Warrior" for his bravery, is an old narrow-gauge engine who worked in a quarry on the far side of Sodor.


Bertram is an old engine who works at the restored mine taking passengers to the fairground that is at the mine. When Toby first saw him, he thought Bertram was a ghost. Since they have met, Bertram and Toby have become good friends.[1]

Bertram used with other "little engines". He used to work at the old mines near a forgotten castle, but when the mines closed he was put away in a shed for safety. However, Toby found him whilst watching over the quarry one night, and has since befriended him. He now works at the restored mines, taking passengers to the fairground within.


Little is known about Bertram's persona, other than that he is considered incredibly brave and old. Toby mistakenly thought Bertram was the “Old Warrior” ghost, but discovered it was a nickname for him being so brave.


Bertram is based on Prince and Palmerston of the Ffestiniog Railway, like Duke.
