Snowflake is a new gem engine.
Snowflake is a very friendly gem. However, he can become easily panicked.
Snowflake is based on a BR Standard Class 9F, which were 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 where 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 Great Britain, at 2,198 tons. "Evening Star", the very last steam locomotive built by BR, is also part of the National Collection. Murdoch, Marie, and Blue Diamond are also members of this class.
Snowflake is painted white with black lining. He has his name on his tender in black. His black and white gemstone is also on his tender.
