Sam

Hailing from the United States of America, Sam is the largest, strongest steam engine to ever visit the Island of Sodor. With a big heart to match his massive size, this super-strong Steamie will travel far and wide to help an engine in need.

Fun Fact!
Sam is based on the 2-6-6-6 AG “Blue Ridge” class steam locomotive from the Virginian Railway in the United States of America. Built by the Lima Locomotive Works in 1945 – the same year the first Railway Series book was published – he is one of the heaviest steam locomotives ever made.
