In 1905, Huxley had to tearfully inform the engines that Garth had died and that they were to be sold. He said a sad farewell to Bertram after he was purchased by Caderyn Gerralt.
Huxley was a jolly and kind man, always understanding of the engines' feelings. He was always sure to listen to Bertram in a crisis though was often perplexed by his solutions to problems. An American at heart, Huxley was never afraid to poke fun at Garth's British businessman approach to things. He was devastated by the death of Garth and showed true courage through the way he tried to pull through and be strong for the engines.
