!Stanley

-->US Voices: Ben Small (US; fifteenth season - eighteenth season), Rob Rackstraw - (US; nineteenth season onwards), David Menkin (US; Samson at Your Service only)

A silver tank engine who debuted in ''WesternAnimation/TheGreatDiscovery''. Stanley was brought to Sodor to do Thomas' workload during the restoration of Great Waterton. Due of his popularity with the other engines, Thomas grew jealous of him and plans to make him look weak. This would cause Great Waterton tower to be demolished and causes Thomas' friends to turn against him. After Thomas is gone missing, Stanley was the first to realize Thomas' feelings and was the one who found and rescued him. Both became friends and with a combined effort made it back to Great Waterton in time to prepare for the opening celebrations.

* TheAce: The narration describes Stanley as newer, bigger, and stronger than Thomas.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: What Thomas thinks of him initially.
* DemotedToExtra: After his debut in ''The Great Discovery'' and Season 12.
* NiceGuy: Very much so. He even showed no hard feelings for Thomas after the latter caused him to take too much trucks which led to the accident with the Great Waterton tower.






* TheAce:Stanley.
