"War is happening, Toby."
Edward is an old mixed traffic engine.
Ivo Hugh interrogated Edward to see if he knew anything about 089. Edward imagined that if information about 089 was revealed, his mission could be jeopardized. Edward told Ivo he knew nothing about 089.
Edward discussed the whereabouts of Connor and the others with other members of the steam team. He tried to calm down the other engines, mainly Henry, when the worried about what could have happened to their friends. He told everyone to prepare for war and became frustrated when everyone hid. Later that day, Murdoch mentioned that Edward would take Gordon's passenger train since Gordon was off the rails. Before Edward could do so however, the Diesel Army arrived. Edward, along with Henry, James, Toby, Duck, Whiff, Stanley, Hank, Hiro, and Porter tried to push back the diesels, but failed. Edward even lead the charge, but couldn't stop them. The army was only stopped by 089 and Lady, who showed up after the steam engines were defeated.
Edward was seen taking a train during a flashback in Battle of the Brave Brothers.
Not long before the events of that episode, Edward was kidnapped along with a majority of the steam engines on Sodor. D199 planned to melt down all the engines, but he was stopped by the 08S. He was latered rescued by Ivo Hugh during a large battle that ended the diesel conflict.
Edward later was at Tidmouth Sheds with Percy, Duck, Gordon, Toby, Emily, Derek, Sidney, Donald and Douglas. The Flying Scotsman soon arrived and everyone discussed Thomas' death, which shocked Percy.
Edward will appear in Season 4.
Edward is an old, but kind engine and is always ready to help an engine in need. He acts as a role model for many of the younger engines, as he is an experienced worker and very wise.
