Glendarroch is a large diesel engine.
Glendarroch was built in 1965 at the Vulcan Foundry. After seemingly working in Scotland for two years, he was brought down to Colhapper to be considered for purchasing by Mr. Dark for use on the Dark Railway. Along with another diesel present, he began picking on 40008, who was very nervous and stuttering, but stopped when Mr. Dark walked over. To his disbelief, Mr. Dark chose to purchase 40008, and he was told by Cammer to shut up before they left.
Glendarroch is a bullying engine who enjoys picking on those who he considers weak or inferior.
Glendarroch is painted in British Railways green with small yellow warning panels.
Glendarroch is based on a British Railways Class 37 Co-Co locomotive. These were nicknamed "Tractors" due to the agricultural sound of their engines. The real No. D6607 Glendarroch has been preserved, now named Ben Cruachan, and is currently being restored at the Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway. Clyde is another member of this class.
The Dark Railway Series Edit
- Glendarroch is seen wearing his nameplates in an episode set in 1967, but the real No. D6607 was not named this until 1988.
