NER: Finley the Blue Dockside Prairie by MiscMischief48 NER: Finley the Blue Dockside Prairie by MiscMischief48
Finley’s a big and rather joyous tank engine that used to work on the Great Western Railway with Isaac. The two were best friends, but got separated when Isaac left for Sodor in 1926. Finley was alone until 1935 when he was exported to the Island of Sodor and sent to work on the NER. He is now reunited with his long lost best friend and works with him at Holden Docks. Him and Isaac usually take it in turns to deliver fish across the island. He is always eager for work and is prone to get too excited at times to the point of almost causing an accident. But, Mr. Godfrey knows he means well, and all he wants is for Finley to be a really useful engine.  


He is based on a GWR 4500 “Prairie", and he was built in 1919.

Finley: What. The heck. Are you doing. 

Gavin: Shunting!

Finley: WHY ARE MY TRUCKS SCATTERED EVERYWHERE, YA DINGUS?! (sigh) Me and Isaac didn't deal with this back on God's Wonderful Railway...

You know what i would call Finley "Mr. rock and roll" considering he tendals to be enrgetic plus the fact that prarie's put out so much power into their cylinders that they rock from side to side when they leave the platform

Funny I thought he'd be more Calidonian Blue if he were Lighter. Maybe Garter Blue but not NWR Blue.

Note: I know your still on edge from the Owl guy so I just want you to be sure to know the following is meant to give ya a laugh as well as a bit of food for thought. Just don't want to make things worse by accident my good friend.

Easy there my friend Thomas never asked for Britt to put him in the limelight after all. XD Reminds me of Chris Eden Green's Top Ten video where he trash talks the E2 on account of Thomas and in a later video he apologized while a photo of one of the DOWT look alikes stares at him. Was quite funny and we know Thomas only became top billing thanks to his nature as well a kid.

When we first meet him he is saying the very things we all said at the age we first saw him "Teach those who underestimate me a lesson, Think your always right and want to see the world." How quickly we kids learn the very lessons he did as well "I'm important but so are others, Find out you have a lot to learn and the world is there for us no matter where we go."

But of course the most important thing he showed us is it takes more than one to be the best. But yeah Hit never got the Memo on Thomas not needing to be the focus of everything Brenner is trying after all the Small Raillway Engine stories at least tell us he's getting ballast for his branch and that the Clergymen are recording his branch the day before they go see Bert.

Oh well I'm not going to make Joey my 0-8-0 Side Tank and brother of Hecate be top biller he's only named after myself thanks to a in series reference to my great uncle being the basis of the CVR Controller. There are many interesting locos for our lines and we can't just focus on one all the time can we?

I've got nothing against Thomas. The whole "star-billing bastard" thing is more of an ongoing gag like Gawdry.

Heh I knew that my good buddy. ;) Was just like I said joking and giving some views was all. Hmm never heard that version of the "Awdry's word is law" meme though eh it's all rivet counter nonsense if you ask me we make our stories as we see fit and that's that am I right?

Same goes for our engines. I'm glad to see no "Brunswick is the Great Western way, If it's not Brunswick it's not GWR, or Two kinds of paint for an engine Brunswick or the wrong one." :o Oh dear I do hope I've not given them ideas! :D

If Brunswick was true GWR then the Blue Kings wouldn't be so popular, so at least there's that.

Indeed my friend indeed. It really does make a nice change heck the red they used for Hogwarts Castle (I know not a true Castle but cylinder size hardly seems such a big deal am I right? ;) ) looks makes a nice change and thats almost as scarlet as James.

Honestly it's why I'm not having strict Livery rules for my engines. Sure Express engines will be in Highland Yellow, Goods Engines will be a Red much like Lewis and my Mixed Traffics will wear a blue but it's not a hard set rule. Joey is going to be Purple and another yard shunter named Enzo (Why I'm naming a Belgian Pannier a Italian name I have no clue but I think it fits his looks.) he's going to keep his Belgian Orange livery.

As much as I love Blue I also like other colors and that's why your point is even more valid and another reason I detest BR Black with Red and White lining on anything other than the TVS Donal' und Dougie. Auch just tae be thinkin' aboot that scallywag Beaching (No I donea care if I misspell his bloody name to those who would correc' me.) has made me slip intae me Scotts.

Pardon me lad I just be gla' I can restrain the harsher words tha' man deserves for the things he did tae the branchlines and railways tha' he though' tae be worthless. I'm sure tha' the twins woul' give him a lashin' if he was still aboot.

:D

Nicely done my friend. Great Western engines do stick together and for good reasons seeing as their railway while holding on to it's past alot also tried to make things their own. Love the Blue King paint too I have to say that is one thing the GWR held back on "Color Verity" in their liveries. imgflip.com/i/1sp3sh XD

Indeed I also have to say I love how he has the 1934 GWR circle logo like Oliver too. I don't know why but it has always been a interesting choice design wise.
