Railway Series History
Peter Sam first appeared in The Railway Series in the story Sir Handel. This story is set just after Peter Sam and Sir Handel had been purchased by the Thin Controller. Peter Sam (originally named Stuart on the Mid Sodor Railway) was renamed and repainted in the Skarloey Railway livery of red with blue lining.
Peter Sam holds a lot of respect for Skarloey, and often tries his best to prevent Sir Handel from getting into trouble. He is a friendly engine who aims to please, and is highly popular among the coaches. The trucks also respect him because he only bumps the trucks that misbehave.
After an accident on the incline when collecting slate trucks, Peter Sam had difficulty steaming. His funnel was knocked off in a tunnel by an icicle. He was soon fitted with an experimental funnel (a Giesl ejector) which enables him to take heavier loads. At first, the others teased him for it, but they soon learned how it made work much easier for him, and now they even wish they had one like it. Peter Sam's friendliness is what keeps the other engines working happily with him.

But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arms length.”

“Rosalynn said, Jimmy, if we could only get Prime Minister Begin and President Sadat up here on this mountain for a few days, I believe they might consider how they could prevent another war between their countries.
