Trackmaster Revolution (TMR) New releases
good luck. Hopefully plarail doesn't use rivet to rivet the face into the body like the trackmaster 2 does.  Gustavo sort of reminded of Bear.

Speaking of modification, i wonder if I can swap out the wheel from trackmaster 2 rolling stock into the traditional tomy ones.  I probably have some extra after I scrapped several non working tender engines.

Electric. US built (General Electric) 'Little Joe' Class EF-4/EP-4.

Gustavo represents one of the ones that went to Brazil:

That puts Thomas' creation as 1944, which is somewhat contentious but I'm not going to argue. At 75 years old though, you'd have thought he might have become somewhat less of a cheeky little know-it-all brat by now!

They may get old and creaky, but they never grow up (looks in mirror).

Thanks Dr Chris

I wonder if double headed Gustavo is electric or Diesel in the show?

It looks very similar to the Locomotive below.  I am not big fan of real locomotives. I believe it is built by GE as well.

Thanks Dr Chris, that certainly answers my question. I wasn't aware that there are overhead electrical wires on Sodor but then again I don't know too much about the series.

Gustavo isn't on Sodor . Thomas meets him in Brazil on his travels .

That’s an EMD F series, probably an F7 or F9.

EDIT: Wikipedia says it’s an F9. There’s filter opening in front of the forward porthole window that’s supposed to distinguish the F9 from earlier versions. Most of the important differences are internal.
