Glynn is an old vertical boiler engine, known as a "Coffee Pot". He was the original number one on the North Western Railway before Thomas' arrival and now works alongside Stephen and Millie at Ulfstead Castle.
Glynn was the original number one engine on the North Western Railway, built by a young Fat Controller and used to work on the Ffarquhar branch line with the other "Coffee Pots". By the time Thomas had arrived, Glynn was the only one remaining and he was left rusting on a siding at Ffarquhar station, with ivy growing all over him. After meeting with and realising Thomas was the new number one, Glynn asked him to look after the branch line and wear the number with pride.
Many years later, Glynn was accidentally rediscovered by Marion, who was working on clearing the line for constructing a new warehouse and she thought Glynn was a talking tree. Worried that Glynn might be scrapped, Thomas moved Glynn to a carriage shed. The following day, Thomas introduced Glynn to Sir Robert Norramby, who eagerly agreed to have Glynn restored and brought to the Estate Railway. Once Glynn was fully restored, he gave The Fat Controller a ride up to Ulfstead Castle for the Earl's Christmas party.
Glynn is a jolly old engine. He is kind, friendly and he loves working hard. However, he sometimes has questioned his own purpose nowadays, since engines are now far bigger and stronger. Despite this, he has accepted his place as an irreplaceable historic figure on the railway. Along with his new position, he has developed a strong admiration and respect for history and its remaining standing figures like Stephen and considers him a firm friend.
Glynn is painted red all over and has gold lining. He has a grey steam space cap and funnel with a brass funnel top. He has brass control caps and a brass nameplate. He has the number "1" painted on his sides in yellow. Because he was left sitting in a siding for a while, he was covered with rust.
He will appear in the third season.
- Sam Wilkinson was responsible for the idea to include Glynn, thus making the Coffee Pots part of the television series' canon.
- He has the same whistle design as Charlie.
- His whistle sound is also Stephen's at a higher pitch.
