Hurricane is a kind engine, although he can be devious. He works at the mainland Steelworks along side Frankie, Lexi, Theo and Merlin and often makes deliveries to Bridlington Goods Yard. Despite his sinister-looking appearance, he ultimately has a big heart and provides helpful advice to any smaller tank engine that may wander into the Steelworks, whether of their own volition or not.
Hurricane is based on the GER Class A55 "decapod", an experimental tank engine with ten driving wheels. It was designed to prove that steam locomotives could compete with the emerging electric locomotives. It never entered regular service and was rebuilt to an 0-8-0 tender engine in 1906. It was later scrapped in 1913.
