This article is about the Crystal Island engine. You may be looking for the Keystone Railway engine.

Lapis is one of the engines from Crystal Island.


When Rex first visited Crystal Island, Lapis showed what to do.

In Crystal Island Adventure, she did the same with James and the other Sudrian engines. She was also seen yelling at Pearl, Ruby, and Amethyst to get back to work.

In A Trip to Crystal Island, Lapis is the first to meet Philip and BoCo, and orders Ruby and Amethyst to show them what to do.


Lapis likes to think she'sin charge of Crystal Island, and enjoys ordering the other engines about. Despite this, she is also very kind and always happy to have visitors to the Island.


Lapis is based on the L&YR Class 28, a class of 0-6-0 mixed-traffic tender locomotive designed by George Hughes for the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway and built by Horwich Works between 1909 and 1912. It was a rebuild of Aspinall's Class 27, with the addition of a Belpaire firebox, a Schmidt/"twin-plug" superheater, and the extension of the footplate and front sandboxes.


Lapis is light blue with dark blue lining. She has dark blue driving wheels and black tender wheels. She also has the number 6 in dark blue on her tender, along with a dark blue, teardrop shaped gemstone. In the eighth season, her lining changed from dark blue to black.
