Sherlock Hill is a large passenger engine who typically pulls the Waterdown Express.
Not much of Sherlock's history is known, but it can be assumed that he used to work on the Southern region before being purchased to run the Waterdown's Express services.
Sherlock is typically a very friendly steam engine who has great respect for engines such as Zebedee and Atlas and has a kind nature towards some of the other engines. However, he can be a bit brash when things go wrong.
Sherlock is painted green with yellow stripes and has a white star on his tender, a trait shared by Zebedee and Ramona.
Sherlock is based of a SR Bullied Light Pacific, built in 1950.
