The Lost Tank Engine
|This article is about 'the magazine engine'. You may be looking for 'the Railway Series engine'.|
A blue tank engine made an appearance in the book, The Monster Under the Shed. It was not named.
This engine was made up by James, and was said to always be ready to help. One night, a stationmaster asked him to get a coach that was left behind. The engine went to get it, but when the weather turned bad, he had to sleep in an old shed. Later, he woke up to a noise and when he opened his eyes, he saw fingers reaching for him from under the shed. He was chased out of the shed by a monster and was never seen again.
The Lost Tank Engine is based on an LSWR 0298 Beattie well tank locomotive.
The Lost Tank Engine is painted blue with red lining.

The Poster Engine
The poster engine is based on the LNER A1/A3 Pacific, but because of the top feed on the boiler, it most likely resembles a non-streamlined LMS Duchess 4-6-2, albeit with the same running board as Gordon.
The poster engine is painted blue with red and black lining and has a crest on its tender.
