Salty is a dockyard diesel who loves to tell tales of his life by the sea. He used to work in the quarry, but is happiest down by the docks. Salty has a great big heart and will always rush to the aid of any engine be it steam or fellow diesel.
Salty worked on an unnamed coastal railway for many years, where he acquired his vast collection of stories and songs, before coming to Sodor to work at the Centre Island Quarry with Bill, and Ben. Salty was upset, being used to working near the sea, but he soon won the trucks over with his tales and sea shanties, and as a reward for his hard work was sent to work at Brendam Docks.
