Pierre started life working on the French railways. Originally he was a regular tank engine, but after a smash at Strasbourg, he was rebuilt as a compound locomotive and sent to America. Following several years on mountain railroads, Pierre was bought by Casey Jones, and brought to the Dock Railway, where he is kept busy shunting and pulling freight trains.
Pierre was painted all over in gray, until 2010, were he was repainted into the same scheme as Cury.
Pierre is serious, but hard-working and loyal. He often gets teased because of his size, but his extra wheels come in useful when heavy loads need moving.
Pierre is based on an experimental "De Bousquet" 0-6-2+2-6-0 articulated engine.
