Denworth The Diesel Engine by Galaxy-Afro Denworth The Diesel Engine by Galaxy-Afro
Built in 1957 as part of a deal with both British Railways, and the Sentinel Wagon Works, Denworth, better known by many as Den is a diesel shunter. He joined the North Western Railway in 1958 under trial, but it wasn't until 1968 that he became an official member of the North Western Railway, and became diesel #12. Although a bit of a slow thinker, he's quite intelligent, and takes no nonsense, especially from the trucks! ~ Afro

Edit ~ Added Sodor Rail variant.

I actually like the name "Denworth".  It sounds more like a full name.  If it's all right, I'd like to adapt this into my headcanon.

Speaking of my headcanon, I portray him and Dart as working at Crovan's Gate Works with Geoff the Works Diesel (and yes, I use the same name for that particular diesel that WildNorWester uses for his headcanon... with his permission, of course ;) ).  The thing is that Den and Dart start off working on the Other Railway (where the Dieselworks is located in my headcanon), but eventually get bought by the Crovan's Gate Steamworks after it's been rebuilt (as in my DotD rewrite, it was completely destroyed by Diesel 10 and his gang of rogue diesels, rather than them simply taking it over).  How long it would take to rebuild it, I'm not completely sure.  I just know I don't want the story to end with the engines getting scrapped.  But what I do want is for Devious Diesel to have a change of heart, although that's partly to give him a bigger role, as once D10's introduced into the original special, Diesel is relegated to the background.  Even so, I don't want Diesel's redemption to feel artificial.  I want people to believe that this was the same Diesel who wanted Duck to get sent away all those years ago, and generally played tricks on the other engines upon his initial return (on that note, I do want to adapt S3's "Diesel Does it Again" and combine it with S6's "The World's Strongest Engine", much like S.i.F. productions did for their "The Trouble with Diesel" redub; I just don't know how I'll be able to get permission to do so, but I do know that I really want to do this).

Go on and do it, I say! I'm actually surprised that someone actually wants to use a piece of my headcanon! Makes me feel really, really good inside!

Also, the Vicarstown Dieselworks doesn't exist in my headcanon. Denworth is a shunter, and freight diesel. Of course, he will take the occasional small passenger train, mainly because in my headcanon, the Hatt Family want ALL of their engines to do whatever jobs they are needed to do, regardless of what they were designed for.

Denworth is to be joined by Dartanian (Dart) at some point, I just haven't made his new design yet. ~ Afro

Sounded nice, and considering the many times that I've been called Denworth, it actually fit in with the universe I'm building. It's also to showcase how different I make my characters to their TV series counterparts. ~ Afro

So Denworth is Den's full name.
