This is technically an official character (and one of the first ones ever seen), but the name "Crovan" was made up (several decades later) by a fan known as Thomas1Edward2Henry3. 87546 and 98462 appeared in the first three illustrations of The Three Railway Engines, with only the front halves of their boilers being shown. A New Zealander named Ross actually wrote a letter to Awdry asking who they were, and Awdry replied saying they were "rude engines on trial who were quickly sent away". The illustrators often added unnamed engines as background characters in the first chapters until the ones we're familiar with began showing up and being promoted in later books.

Took me a while to get why he used an old Emily tender instead of the Donald/Douglas type, until I realized it still holds the battery (because it's an original syle Henry with the C battery tender). He has some strange ideas for customs no one would normally expect.
