Why does his rebuild have a knuckle coupler

That is what his basis uses now (in Narrow gauge rebuild form) but Bert would most likely used buffers on Sodor to match the other rolling stock.

Lovely Work! I do prefer Bert's current shape.

His current shape should have buffers but I don't think his tank engine form existed because he is said to be the youngest of the original trio in official canon.

In terms of the RWS/tv series, I have to agree with you but I just made these according to Bert's basis because I wanted to see what he would look like.

I see. But these are the built dates of the original trio in my canon:
Rex: 1923
Mike: 1926 (I changed Mike's built date as I wanted them to all be built in the 1920's)
Bert: 1927

Do you know the history of Mike's basis?...

The wikia says it was built in 1966 but my canon is an alternate universe where Mike was built a few decades before his real life counterpart.

Mike's basis used to be Rex's basis' powered-tender. 😵

I do know Mike use to be green like Rex before coming to the Arlesdale Railway, but I find the first one strange.

Got to admit that I prefer the shape that we see in the RWS books.
Also Clive Spong drew Bert wrong as he kept illustrating him as per the middle version.

Why did Bert get a new shape again?
Reply
:iconthomassirhandel:
Because he was like Henry's early years in his old shape.

Because he was a poor steamer.

I personally prefer Bert's new form, but where on earth did the tank engine version come from!? I certainly haven't seen that one before.

Bert's basis River Irt  was originally a tank engine called Muriel built in 1894 for an estate railway before eventually arriving at the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway getting its main tender shape in 1922/27. But her history is nothing compared to Mike's basis 😉
