Spencer is the private engine of the Duke and Duchess who once visited the Island of Sodor. He is very sleek, grand and proud. Gordon was jealous when the other engines declared him the fastest engine in the world. However, Spencer's pride caused him trouble when he doesn't take Gordon's advice to take on plenty of water before tackling the hills on the Island. He ran out of water on Gordon's hill, and Gordon had to come to the rescue to pull Spencer to the special party. Spencer was embarrassed when Sir Topham Hatt declared Gordon the fastest engine on the Island.
Spencer is part of the magical world of Thomas & Friends. The engines all work and play together on the Island of Sodor. While they are doing their very useful work, they learn important lessons about friendship and getting along. Many of the characters are available to purchase as part of different toy brands, including the timeless Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Series. You can purchase Thomas and many of his engine friends, as well as wooden track, buildings, destinations and sets from the simple oval to the Deluxe Tidmouth Sheds set. Many engines are available on a limited basis and are retired, so check ebay or other online auction sites for your favorites if you can't find them here or in a store near you.
