Stanley is a silver shunting tank engine from The Island of Sodor.
Stanley is the "boy-next-door" of the rails. He's a cool, courteous and cheery chap who tends to be incredibly compassionate and empathic: there is nothing he would not do for another engine. And if he could not do it, he would find someone who could. He works as a shunting engine at Fausten with Dunbar and stands out among the yards with his shiny silver tanks and bright red wheels which everyone thinks is very stylish. This is what makes him a very welcome addition to the Crotoonia fleet.
Stanley is based on a hybrid of a Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0ST engine and Kitson's No. 5459 "Austin I", but with a taller funnel.
Stanley is painted in a silver grey livery with a metallic silver smoke box. His running plate, lining and wheels are red and he has a dark grey basecoat. His nameplate is red with his name in silver on each side of his saddletank.
