Sixteen does not have a name, but he has just a number, and he worked in a steelworks. One of his jobs was to take the waste from the works in special trucks to a place they called the tip. He was rescued one day after driving past the Danger Warning sign, and sent to the back of the shed in disgrace.
He is currently the only engine to sport yellow buffers. Strangly egnough his artwork shows him with stripped buffers.
He is the only steam engine to be referred to by number, ignoring Lord Harry.
