|Elsie as drawn by 01Salty|
She was created by the Reverend W. Awdry, but was not featured in any Railway Series stories. A model of her, however, was seen in Awdry's model layout of Thomas' Branch Line. She also appeared in The Railway Series: Surprise Packet, in which a stationmaster asked Toby to move two trucks to two different depots before he could couple up to his coaches.
Elsie is painted brown with the letters 'NW' painted on in yellow.
