The Railway Stories – Thomas and Friends

Thomas the Tank Engine

Thomas the Tank Engine

Wilbert Vere Awdry, known as Reverend W. Awdry was a railway enthusiast, English clergyman and creator of the Railway Series for children. In 1943 his son Christopher was ill with measles. To cheer him up Awdry invented his first Railway story. In 1945 Rev. Awdry published the first book of the Thomas Series that eventually totalled 26 books.

These fantastic children’s books has given joy to thousands and thousands of children. The three characters – Thomas, Gordon and Edward – three tank engines weren’t good friends at the beginning. They are often squabbling, quarrelling and boasting. Their adventures make them realise that the best in life is having good friends and it is so beautiful to help each other.
