Thomas the Tank Engine from Thomas & Friends


Thomas the Tank Engine

Thomas the Tank Engine is the most famous engine who is painted blue with red lining. He is a cheeky little engine and tries very hard to be a very useful. Thomas is easily identified by his No. 1 and bright blue color.

He is the very first train most children start with when collecting Thomas & Friends engines and trains. Thomas is a member of the Steam Team, which includes Edward, Henry, Gordon, James, Percy, Toby and Emily.


Thomas is based on the E2 Class of locomotives, the London Brighton and South Coast Railway 0-6-0 E2 with extended side tanks. He made his first appearance in 1946 in the second book in a series called Thomas the Tank Engine.
