Gordon is the No. 4 blue engine who pulls the express. As the senior member of the engine family, he is the fastest and most powerful of Sir Topham Hatt’s team – and he knows it. He’s goodhearted, always willing to forgive, and uses his superior strength to help smaller engines out of trouble. Gordon is based on a Gresley Liner A3 4-6-2 engine.
For those that want to know 4-6-2 means: 4 wheels in the front, 6 wheels in the middle, and 2 wheels in the back.
He will look Great next to Thomas the Tank Engine. Check him out too!!!!!
