Rheneas is the second oldest engine on the Skarloey Railway.
When he and Skarloey first arrived on Sodor, they went through many mishaps before becoming truly enterprising engines, but one hundred years later they are two of the most respected engines on the Skarloey Railway. They are seen as the elders of the fleet and keep all the other engines on task and in good working order.
In his early days, Rheneas braved terrible weather and saved his passengers lives, earning the title, "Gallant Old Engine".
Rheneas went away to be mended during an extensive overhaul and when he returned, the engines were thrilled to have him back.
Rheneas has been called a "gallant old engine" before and deserves such a title. Rheneas is highly determined, brave, and courageous. He is a tough, committed worker despite his age and takes great responsibility in his work. He is keen to keep his friends smiling and, although he is a level-headed engine, he can be a bit of an adventurer too. Though he may often try to struggle on alone, Rheneas knows when it is time to call on the help of his friends. Nevertheless, Rheneas is always highly dedicated to the task at hand.
Rheneas is painted vermilion with black lining and brass fittings. He has black and brass name and number plates on the sides of his boiler and coal bunkers respectively.
