Rosie is a tank engine who idolises Thomas.
Rosie began idolising Thomas to the point of hero-worship and imitation. Though this is said to be the most sincere form of flattery, it only served to irritate Thomas whilst he was trying to deliver a special birthday post train to Alice at High Farm. He even started to try and avoid her, but after Thomas had an accident in the course of delivering this train, Rosie helped him and he came to respect her.
Rosie is a friendly, respectful, and helpful tank engine who likes Thomas very much. She and Thomas like to have fun and also like to help each other when they are doing work. Rosie could be described as a feisty, energetic and free-spirited tomboy who is not afraid to do hard work. She loves to race just as much as she loves to be really useful.
Rosie was formerly painted lavender with light grey tank panels, gold boiler bands, red lining and wheels, and light grey wheel rims.
Her livery was soon changed, she is now painted cherry red with dark raspberry tank panels, gold boiler bands and light grey lining. She will have the letters "NWR" written on her tank panels in light grey and the number "37" in light grey under her cab windows.
