Toby is old-fashioned, both in looks and outlook. Every engine, no matter how old, wants to be Really Useful and having once nearly been scrapped, Toby is always happy to work. He is not above being tempermental sometimes, but since he works mainly up an outlying quarry line he can work off his moods without causing grief to anyone except his own faithful coach Henrietta.
Did you know? Toby is Christopher Awdry's favorite character.
