The engines didn't like Neville at first for, although Neville was kind and friendly, he had the misfortune of looking like a diesel. Thomas saw him with 'Arry and Bert, and soon a rumour spread that he was planning to bump the steam engines. Luckily, the rumour was rectified and Thomas befriended Neville after rescuing him from a broken viaduct.

Sometime later, Neville told Thomas and Percy about the job of collecting the Sodor Brass Band.


Neville is enthusiastic, friendly, and always ready to help out other engines. Neville never holds a grudge and can always be found with a smile on his face.


Neville is based on the SR Bulleid Q1 locomotive, which were often referred to as "ugly ducklings". The specific engine Neville is based on was scrapped in 1964.
