Percy is green saddle tank engine who loves playing jokes, and runs the Ffarquhar branch line with Thomas, Toby, and Daisy, and is the number 6 engine on the North Western Railway.  


Percy was built in c.1900 and worked on the Great Western Railway until 1933. It is possible he was so cheeky his controller put him up for sale. in 1949, The Fat Controller came over when Gordon, Henry, and James were on strike, and was desperate for another engine. He chose Percy and brought him back to Sodor, where he helped Thomas and Edward. He worked on the branch line while Thomas and Edward were taking care of the mainline trains as the three big engines were shut up in their sheds. Sometime later, he was waiting on the main line for the signalman to switch the points. However, he had forgotten to whistle to alert the signalman, and Gordon suddenly came down on the same track. Percy barely missed an accident and was so frightened that he reversed backwards without his driver. He kept on going all the way to Lower Suddery before he was stopped by a bank of Earth. Afterwords, Percy became a station pilot and goods engine until 1955, when the Fat Controller decided to buy a bigger, heavier engine to do the work while Percy went to the Ffarquhar Branch. This engine was Duck, and it was with him that Percy finally got revenge on the bigger engines for ordering him about. He and Duck sat on the turntable, refusing to let the other engines in, claiming they did not have the Fat Controller's permission to do so. After the incident was sorted out, Percy became part of the Ffarqhuar Branch Line.
