Raul is a Brazilian engine who will be introduced in The Great Race.
Raul is a feisty little tank engine who may look like a Diesel. All the way from the sunny heights of Brazil, this little shunter is strong and agile, making him the perfect candidate for the Shunting race.
Raul is feisty, strong and agile.
Raul is based on a series of vertical-boilered steam locomotives built by Sentinel in 1931 for the São Paulo Railway. The real engine carrying his number is still in service in Cruzeiro, Brazil, and is built to run on broad gauge rails, whereas Raul is standard gauge.
Raul is painted yellow with blue and green lining. He has yellow and black hazard stripes painted across his running board and bufferbeams, and his buffers are silver. He also bears his number, 166, on the side of his cab.
