Emily Gordon is a big blue tender engine from the television series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, and was the second engine to appear
in The Railway Series written by the Rev.W.Awdry. She is train number
4, a 4-6-2, painted blue with red stripes, and for quite some time
he was the largest and strongest
engine (before Murdoch
arrived) in The Fat Controller's fleet.
Emily Gordon has always viewed
herself as the most important engine, mostly because of her size and strength, and that his main task is to pull
the Express. At times, this can lead
to him feeling superior, even to the point of uppity. However, she usually
learns his lesson, realising that all engines have their place
in the team.
