Rheneas may be the same age as Skarloey, but he's quite different when it comes to work! Tough, determined, and courageous, Rheneas is a vigorous little engine who works to the last block of coal and the final drop of water to ensure the job is finished on time and on schedule! The younger engines look up to him for his dedication to work, but he's not afraid to ask for their help in a time of need! This little engine truly is "gallant"!
Rheneas is based on the Talyllyn Railway's Dolgoch, a Fletcher Jennings Class Bb 0-4-0WT. In fiction, Dolgoch is Rheneas' twin.
Rheneas is painted vermilion with black lining and brass fittings. He has black and brass name and number plates on the sides of his boiler and coal bunkers respectively.
