Fernando is a diesel shunter who works in Brazil.


Thomas & Friends

Fernando was first seen at Guanabara Bay when Sir Topham Hatt was looking for Thomas. He told him that he saw the tank engine taking coffee to San Francisco. He then proceeded to dance along to the music after Topham was dragged away by a group of people taking part in the carnival.

Fernando was seen pulling a train through the docks as Thomas, Raul, Gabriela and Cassia were playing with a beach ball. Raul proceeded to send the ball flying into one of his trucks.

Thomas encountered Fernando when he was delivering machine parts. The diesel complimented Thomas on the sounds that his moving parts were making, saying that he had a good rhythm going and suggested that he go to the carnival.


Fernando is very polite and tries to be helpful to anyone he meets. He seems to have a habit of pointing out when someone repeats him, and will say "That's what I just said!" whenever they do so.
