Skarloey is a red 0-4-2 tank engine of 2 foot gauge who lives at the MR complex.
Skarloey was built in 1864 as a cabless 0-4-0, which made him ride rough until he was rebuilt with a pony truck and cab, making him an 0-4-2. He worked the line alongside Rheneas for some years, and in 1945 was given an overhaul, returning to service in 1951.He has been the sage of the little engines ever since.
Skarloey is faithful, wise, kind engine. He stands no nonsense. Sometimes he can be timid, and is scared of wooden bridges, wharfs, and storms.
