Our story begins in 1917 in the sleepy village of Box in Wiltshire, England. A young boy lies awake in his bed, listening to steam engines huffing and puffing along the nearby Great Western Railway. To the little boy tucked up in bed, listening to the engines, it sounds very much like the trains are talking to each other. The young boy is Wilbert Awdry – later to become the Reverend W. Awdry, the creator of “The Railway Series” and the most famous tank engine in the world –Thomas.
Many years later in 1940, when Wilbert was married, he found himself passing on his love of railways to his own son, Christopher Awdry. In 1943, when Christopher was confined to his bed with measles, Wilbert amused his son by improvising stories about the steam engines from his own childhood. And so began the adventures of Edward and two other engines, Gordon and Henry. These original stories were told over and over again until, pressed by Christopher to be more consistent with the details, the Rev. W. Awdry finally scribbled the stories on scraps of paper.
In 2000 Thomas became the first steam engine to star in his own movie. “Thomas and the Magic Railroad” was a feature length film that delighted audiences in cinemas everywhere. Today, Thomas is entertaining a third generation of children with a new series of “Thomas & Friends” from HIT Entertainment. With a theme park in Japan, countless games and toys, hundreds of “Day Out With Thomas” events in Britain, Canada, America, Thomas Land in the UK and Japan and a brand new website, the little wooden model made by Rev. Awdry over 65 years ago has come a very long way indeed. Everyone who loves Thomas the Tank Engine hopes he’ll be going full steam ahead for many more years to come
