Paul is a large diesel engine.
Paul was built in 1966 at Falcon Works. The following year, he was taking an express when he had to wait at Galen Junction as the connecting train from the Dark Railway was delayed. When the train arrived, he berated the engine for being late, but stopped when he realised that he was talking to the first of his type to be built, Raymond. He then started teasing Raymond because of his age, claiming that he needed retiring whereas he himself was still virtually brand new. He then left the station before Raymond could respond.
Paul eventually ended up at Hedborough North, getting into various misadventures with the other engines based there.
Paul is somewhat arrogant and is not above making fun of his fellow diesels.
Paul is currently painted in large logo BR blue, with full yellow ends.
Paul is based on the British Railways Class 47 Co-Co.
The Dark Railway Series Edit
- Paul was one of the main characters in the Cool Matty Productions series The Hedborough Diesels. This series aired in late 2012, but only lasted for three episodes before being discontinued by the creator, who is a friend of Dark DJ.
- Paul mentions that he was built in 1966, but the real No. 47301 was built in 1964, two years before the character.
