Henry is a long, streamlined steam engine, and one of the older engines on the tracks. He, like Edward and Gordon, was there from the start. Henry is a very smart engine, but he is quite prone to getting ill or becoming sad. He also has a tremendous love for nature. He is well-known as one of the strongest engines on Sodor as well, and very few engines can beat him, even diesels can't. After Pumpkin arrived, he was slightly skeptical about him, but, like Edward, soon welcomed him after he proved himself very useful.
Henry is based on a London, Midland and Scottish Railway Stanier 5MT "Black 5" 4-6-0 with Fowler tender circa 1920, rebuilt in 1950.
