Raul is a yellow Brazilian engine.
Raul participated in the Great Railway Show's Shunting Challenge at least twice and won the championship at least once. Once when he was again being carried from Brazil to take compete in England via a rail ferry, he accidentally arrived on the Island of Sodor when it made a wrong stop. Raul promptly backed onto the ferry, but not before Thomas corned him and attempted to start a conversation with him until being bumped out of the way by Vinnie.
At the show, Raul participated in the Shunting Challenge alongside Ivan, Gina, Ashima and Thomas, but ended losing the event after championships were awarded to Thomas and Ashima. He later returned home with the other international engines.
