Edward was Bio-Fused by Sodor Research Ltd sometime in the early 1980's.
When they were filming for the TV Series, Edward was to whistle to some kids on the platform at Wellsworth. However, when he did so, his whistle suddenly malfunctioned, causing blood to spray out of it and splash all over the boys, Edward seemed to survive, however.
When Sodor Railways went out of business, Edward was decommissioned along with several other Bio-Fused vehicles until they were found by HiT Logistics.
Thirty years later, Edward was melted down along with James, due to HiT Logistics attempting to avoid pressure from the media and the public outcry, and Edward and James were among the many engines being melted down to destroy any evidence leading to the events of the Shed 17 documentary. Both Edward and James' remains would later be taken away to Blue Mountain Quarry to be disposed off.
