Thomas the Tank EngineThomas the Tank Engine is a fictional anthropomorphic locomotive featured on the British children's television series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends and its American spinoff Shining Time Station, and earlier in The Railway Series books by the Rev. W. V. Awdry. In his first appearance he was described as follows:
"Thomas is a tank engine who lives at a big station on the Island of Sodor. He's a cheeky little engine with 6 small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, a short stumpy boiler and a short stumpy dome." -Narrator Ringo Starr from the episode "Thomas & Gordon" (aka "Thomas Gets Tricked"). He has also been described as "a cheeky little engine" and "a little engine with a long tongue."
He is the star of the television series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. Thomas the tank engine first appeared in 1946, when stories about him were published in The Railway Series by Reverend W.V. Awdry. He is the most well known fictional locomotive in the world.
When he first appeared in the book 'Thomas the Tank Engine', he was a station pilot, used to shunt coaches and trucks for the bigger engines. He longed for more important jobs, but his inexperience prevented this. Eventually he was responsible for rescuing James after an accident, and the Fat Controller (who was then known as the Fat Director in the Railway Series) decided that he was ready for his own branch line. He has remained in charge of this line ever since.
His closest friends are Annie and Clarabel, his coaches. However, he is also very good friends with Percy the Small Engine, despite a lot of arguments.
