Dawnbreaker, Dawn for short, is a small tank engine and is the head shunter at Waterdown.


Dawn's history is mostly unkown. However the events of From Dusk Until Dawn, specifically that she seems to not be aware of the similarity of her actions to Creed's, suggest she is relatively new to the Waterdown compared to the likes of Clay and Ramona.


Being the head shunter of Waterdown, Dawn is an engine who is dedicated to her work and as a result, has gained the others trust of her judgment. Dawn a relatively friendly engine, if a bit stubborn at times, and is always willing to give advice when possible. She's also very nit-picky, clearly stating if something is not the way she wants it to be and as a result has a tendency to overthink her work, leading to maddening extremes. Dawn also hates lying and gets easily annoyed with the likes of Clay and Cojak.


Dawn is currently painted in LNER Apple Green.


Dawn is based on an LNER J50 0-6-0 tank engine. None of the real life engines have survived into preservation.
