"I'd like to introduce you to my friend Rajiv, from India! Rajiv is a steam engine who works on the Indian Railway, which he's told me is the biggest and busiest railway in the world. He brings a bit of glamour to the railway. He once won the Best Decorated Engine competition, which he loves to remind everyone about! Rajiv likes to think he's a royal engine, though not everyone agrees. He thinks of himself as a real star, and would like nothing more than to feature in a movie! Rajiv has certainly got the confidence to be a good star, and I can't wait to visit him in India and see if he can achieve his dream!" - Thomas talks about Rajiv in Meet the Characters!
Rajiv is a decorated tank engine from India.
