Trainz ModelsEdit

Spencer's model from NWR Origins Epside IV onwards is the 2012 model from SI3D. Previously, Spencer's model used in the episodes was from the website Sodor Workshops 3D. It was extracted from the Wii Hiro of the Rails game. Unfortunately, the model has been removed from the website, although there is another model of Spencer on it which is a simple reskin of the Trainz default Mallard engine. 


Spencer is an LNER A4 class, which were built from 1935 to 1938. However, his smokebox and face are less angled to fit the eye mechanism. This was carried out into the CGI series. 


Spencer is very arrogant and stuck up because of his record speed. He is also cunning and devious at times. However, he doesn't truly mean harm and can sometimes be helpful.

  • Spencer is very similar to Crovan, being an arrogant private engine of important people. This similarity may was addressed in the special The Most Famous Engine, in which Spencer and Crovan have a rivalry with each other.  
  • Spencer is Thomas1Edward2Henry3's favorite Non-Awdry character.  
  • DarthWill3's Spencer voice is an imitation of actor Tim Curry. 
  • Spencer was the second largest engine in the classic series, behind Murdoch. Now, he is outsized by Caitlin, Connor, and Hank (assuming he is still on the railway). Hiro is a foreign engine so he does not count.
