Mr. Theodore Traverse is a man who owns a business and works in the town of Waterdown. He is typically a customer of the railway but will be the person who most likely sues the railway.

Theodore Traverse was born into a wealthy family and is the grandson of the chief engineer of the Waterdown Railway. He is the owner of the Synergy Consortium and is one of the largest customers of the Waterdown Railway and also owns The Drains, the tunnel that goes underneath the town of Shadowlay.
Traverse typically has nack for complaining and will constantly claim to sue the railway even at the smallest mishaps. He looks down on Steam Engines being used on Waterdown as he believes to look forward to Modernisation and will often specifically travel behind Diesel Locomotives. However, after Boomer had a breakdown with the Express, Atlas had to pull the train for the remaining journey. As a result, Traverse invested in building an electric locomotive, Dev-Khan, which failed on a trial run, despite Traverse insisting Charles Crawfoots that it would be more reliable than Steam and Diesel. He typically has arguments with almost every person and engine on the Waterdown and is generally quite selfish. Despite this, Traverse is good at heart and will admit his mistakes, despite there being an argument beforehand.


Voice Actor
  • Daniel: Public Enemy onwards.

  • Mr. Traverse is now the owner of the land where the Masonry Bridge Scrapyard is located and it can be assumed that a new factory was built there due to the scrapyard's closure and Traverse having no interest in keeping it open for its original purpose.
  • Despite not liking steam engines, Traverse actually spared Ember from Killian Hardgraves, much to Atlas' relief.
