Ryan detail image


Ryan is an affable engine, who goes out of his way to be kind and is concerned when he sees others in trouble. Ryan would like to be a hero, but he’s not actually as brave as he wishes he was and has a tendency to panic a little in the face of danger. It doesn’t put him off trying though. Ryan is direct and sincere, but he has a good sense of humour too and is not above making a joke at his own expense.

Fun Fact!
Ryan is based on the Great Northern Railway’s Class N2. This engine was purposely chosen for Ryan, because whilst it’s a tank engine like Thomas, it’s slightly bigger and newer, which helped to make Thomas feel threatened and think he was going to be replaced.
