Thomas the Tank Engine and friends seems to have been around forever and in fact the first series was made in 1984 so a whole generation have been bought up on the stories of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends - or just Thomas and Friends as they are known now in the US.

The Thomas the Tank Engine programs have featured guest narrators from Ringo Starr to Pierce Brosnan and were based on books by the Rev W V Awdry and his son Christopher. The series tends to appeal to boys under the age of about 8 but has had universal appeal.

Thomas Engines

The series started off with only a few engines with Thomas being the main one and now there are 7 other main engines in addition to Thomas himself:

  • Percy is the no 6 green engine and Thomas' best friend
  • Gordon is the No 4 blue engine
  • Henry is the No 9 green engine
  • James is the No 5 red engine
  • Edward is the No 2 blue engine
  • Toby is the No 7 brown tram engine
  • Emily is an emerald green engine and the newest member of the team

However, there are constantly new engines being added to the stories and lots of additional names used for those engines which reflect children's names of the day like Harry, Caroline, Oliver etc. The Fat Controller is one of the other main characters in the stories and he looks after all the engines.

The scope of products available for the Thomas the Tank engine series is as wide as you can imagine - from the initial books and Thomas replica train sets to Thomas bed covers and the now obligatory decal bedroom stickers.
