Thomas and Friends

Thomas and Friends

Thomas and Friends

"The Story of Thomas and Friends" Our story begins in 1917 in the sleepy village of a Box in Wiltshire, England. It is night-time and a young boy lies awake in his bed, listening to steam engines huffing and puffing along the nearby railway tracks. Deep in the surrounding contryside, where the Great Western Railway main line climbs steadily uphill for 2 miles, a tank engine from Box station is steaming away, helping a heavy goods train up the hill. To the little boy tucked up in bed, listening to the engines struggling up the incline, it sounds very much like they are talking to each other. The young boy is Wilbert Awdry - later to become the Reverend W. Awdry, the creator of The Story of Thomas and Friends and the most famous tank egnine in the world, Thomas. Wilbert Awdry's passion for trains was shared with his father, the Rev. Vere Awdry. The "Railwayman Parson" used to walk around his parish with his son Wilbert, meeting and talking to local railwaymen. A model railway layout was even built for Wilbert in the garden.
