Biography

In Thomas and Friends season 9 episode "Thomas and The New Engine" Neville came to Sodor and he was teased immediately by the two twin diesel shunters 'Arry & Bert. However this was misconstrued as him being friends with the 2 diesel's by Thomas, this would become a rumor that spread around the steam engines. Neville was nice to the engines but due to the rumor they didn't greet him back, some even thought he was planning to bump them. Later on, Neville would nearly fall down a broken bridge, Thomas would save him and makeup with Nevile. 

In his limited future appearances, Neville has been displayed as slightly cheeky and ready to work.
