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 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.
Although Glynn is meant to be one of the "Coffee Pots" built by The Fat Controller, he shares his design with the Dorking Greystone vertical boiler locomotive of 1871 at the Beamish Museum.
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" is painted on his sides in yellow. Because he was left sitting in a siding for a while, he was covered with rust.
- Season 1 - Tinsel on the Tracks
- Season 2 - Trouble on the Line (does not speak) and Duncan's Discovery
- 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.
