MSR No. 8/SKR No. 13 'Minnie' by Nictrain123 MSR No. 8/SKR No. 13 'Minnie' by Nictrain123
Atlas was built by the Decauville Locomotive Works in 1911 to work on a railway in France. She was later bought (along with her brother Alfred) to the Mid-Sodor Railway in 1924 to work in the mines at Cas-ny-Hawin. She later had a bad accident when one of the mine tunenls caved in on her when she was working. She was recovered and sent back to France for a rebuild. She had her cab removed and her funnel and dome were given gold fittings and she also had her named changed to Minnie. After Alfred was scrapped in 1927, Minnie worked on the MSR until she was sold in 1936 along with Tim and Jerry. She was acquired by the Peel Godred Aluminum Works to help mine the alumni out of the hills. By 1950, the line had been torn up in favor of road traction and Minnie was put of for sale. Due to her age and size, no one wanted to buy her so she was laid up in the warehouse until 2001 when she was bought by the Skarloey Railway. She was rebuilt, repainted and put back into service a month later, and now she either pulls little passneger trains or helps the diesels with maintence jobs.

I don't own Thomas (only the sprites). It is owned by the Awdry Family and Mattell.

I think Minnie and Millie will get on quite well. Considering their French background.
