Rajiv is an Indian engine who will be introduced in The Great Race.
Rajiv is a small tank engine from the East Indian Railway, who carries passengers and goods from Calcutta in the east up to the north of India. Set against the backdrop of the Himalayan Mountains, Rajiv’s beautiful colors help him to stand out from the rest, making him the perfect contender for the Best Decorated Engine Parade.
Rajiv is based off of the Fairy Queen, a 2-2-2 tank engine built in Leeds, England which currently works for the East Indian Railway Company. It is the oldest operating steam locomotive in the world.
Rajiv is painted navy blue with yellow lining, a black boiler, and golden details. His funnel is painted in the colours of the Indian flag.
