He and Rusty are the only two diesels on the Skarloey Railway. Rusty is eager to work, but Fred is lazy and stubborn. In Confidence, Fred is unable to work yet again, and Rusty thinks it doesn't come down to his engine, but his lack of self confidence. Rusty lets him take over Duncan's train when he breaks down, and by the time he has reached Crovan's Gate, he is feeling much better. After his overhaul, he works well alongside Rusty and Atlas as one of the three maintenance engines.
- Fred has received a built-from-scratch model for Part 2 of Season 2 of Sodor: The Modern Years, and is the first to have 3D faces.
