Personality

Not much is known about Blue Diamond. It can be assumed, however, that she is very authoritative and is respected by the other gems.

Basis

Blue Diamond is based on a BR Standard Class 9F with a BR1G tender, which was used for fast and heavy goods trains. The class was the last of the BR Standards and the final steam engine class built by British Railways, with the last one, "Evening Star", built in March 1960. Due to the size and shape of the class, they were given the nickname "Spaceships". "Evening Star" and eight other 9Fs are preserved. One 9F, "Black Prince" holds the record for hauling the heaviest steam-hauled train in all of England, Scotland and Wales, at 2,198 tons. "Evening Star", the very last steam locomotive built by BR, is also part of the National Collection.

Livery

Blue Diamond is painted sky blue with dark blue lining. She has her large blue gem on her tender.
