他速度快, 喜欢匆忙, 但他显然没有其他引擎的速度快。但菲利普的信心是一样大的, 如果不比任何人都大, 他总是愿意尝试, 肯定相信自己。他的行为和态度很快赢得了他在 Sodor 的许多新朋友, 特别是托马斯和珀西, 但戈登和詹姆斯发现他的吹牛有点难以接受。
Philip is little diesel boxcab engine with a big personality. Philip is a comic character and a bit of a clown. He is very eager and full of enthusiasm, and he has an innocent, but very overblown sense of his own capabilities. Philip can be very funny, but some of the bigger engines have very little patience for the little boxcab. Philip is strong and can pull lots of trucks, but not that many trucks compared to the really big engines.
He is fast and likes to hurry about, but he is clearly not as fast as most of the other engines. But Philip’s confidence is as big if not bigger than anyone’s and he is always willing to try and definitely believes in himself. His actions and attitude soon win him many new friends on Sodor, especially Thomas and Percy, but Gordon and James find his bragging a little hard to accept.
