Backstory

Nigel was built at Doncaster Works in 1922 along with his twin Gordon, like Gordon, Nigel was pompous and self-important.

In 1923, Nigel arrived on Sodor with his twin Gordon. Nigel, John, Robinson, Stephen and Gordon teased Edward for being smaller and weaker than them. Nigel was sent back to the LNER minutes after Henry came out of the tunnel.

Nigel was jealous of other engines and wanted them to be scrapped, which caused him to become a violent engine.

In 1959, Nigel was scrapped.
