D3 (Originally D7101)

Bear, so named for the growling noises he makes, is a green Diesel engine.


7101 came on loan to Sodor with another diesel, Diesel 199. 199 was blatantly arrogant and bad-mouthed the steam engines until 7101 and Duck shut him up. The next day, 7101's injector failed while pulling the "Limited". Henry, who was already towing 199 and had failed himself while pulling some oil tankers, came to help; 7101 was still able to move by himself with some help from Henry. To the passengers' delight, Flying Scotsman took their train, while Henry helped 7101 home. The engines persuaded Sir Topham Hatt to let 7101 stay on, and renamed him "Bear". Bear liked this name, saying it meant he "really belonged".


  • Regular (2003, UK only)


  • Instead of being painted green, merchandise depicts him in his BR blue livery.
