Salty the Dockside Diesel by Galaxy-Afro Salty the Dockside Diesel by Galaxy-Afro
Another new redesign for my series. Salty is now painted in a realistic blue paint scheme, has a red bufferbeam, and now has a full set of teeth. He is also now numbered D9, for he will be the ninth diesel purchased for the North Western Railway by Sir Charles Topham Hatt II in the 1960's. ~ Afro

Edit ~ Added NWR plaque.

Edit #2 ~ Added Pre-Sodor BritishRail variant.

I prefer Salty in his iconic red, but he looks alright in blue.

A LOT of fans had Blue Salty in their Railway Series inspired stories during the Dark Ages of the Television Series. I figured that since the Sudrian Chronicles is based off of these series ideas', then I could sneak it in as tribute! ;) ~ Afro

Nice sprite of Salty, I plan to have him in British Rail Blue and came into 1968 as #D7/2991b as 2991a is based on the 'real' 2991.

Almost thought he was his brother, Brian.  Lol

Salty was the base to create Brian. He will be introduced in my series after Brain's appearance in Thomas & The Fall.

I remembered that Salty was depicted in blue quite a bit for fanon versions of a "Railway Series" Salty. I decided to bring that back because it's seldom used these days! ;)
