- Were you looking for Emily (tugboat)?
Emily is a Stirling Single tender engine from The Island of Sodor.
Emily acts as a sisterly figure to the others. Emily is kind and compassionate and is always sensitive to the other engines' feelings. She may show hints of bossiness or overconfidence but she often acts as a voice of reason to the rest of Crotoonia's railway fleet, particularly when James gets too big for his wheels, or when a friend needs moral support and if she wrongs someone, knowingly or not, she is quick to apologize.
Emily is based on a Great Northern Railway G3 Stirling Single 4-2-2. Designed by Patrick Stirling in 1870 with 8ft 1in driving wheels and outside cylinders, they were specifically built for high speed expresses between London and York. These locomotives were capable of hauling 280-ton trains at 50 mph, though they could reach 85 mph on lighter services.
Emily is painted emerald green with gold and yellow lining. She has chocolate colored running-boards and her buffers are silver.
