Wilfred is a mountain engine. He was built at Winterthur at Switzerland in 1895 and arrived on Sodor in 1897.

When Culdee returned to the Culdee Fell Railway in 1964 after an overhaul, Wilfred and Ernest informed him of the arrival of Lord Harry, Alaric and Eric. He and his coach were later delayed at Summit after Lord Harry derailed at the points. He was last seen lecturing #6 about the importance of goods work.


Wilfred is based on Wyddfa of the Snowdon Mountain Railway.


Wilfred is painted purple with orange lining. In the magazines, he is painted yellow with white lining.


  • According to a Thomas and Friends card game, Wilfred is known as the musical engine by the other mountain engines because he likes to whistle as he ascends and descends the steep hills.
