Royal Mail issued a set of stamps to mark the centenary of the birth of the Reverend Wilbert Awdry creator of Thomas the Tank Engine.

The six stamps show Thomas and some of his friends from the TV series.

Reverend Awdry’s passion for railways had been instilled in him by his clergyman father, Vere, and when Wilbert himself had a family, he shared his railway enthusiasm with his own son, Christopher.

It was while two-year-old Christopher was suffering with measles that Wilbert tried to enliven his son’s bed-bound quarantine by telling stories and drawing pictures about a group of little engines.

Thomas The Tank Engine
1st Class – ‘Thomas’
‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ is a 0-6-0 tank locomotive, based on the LB&SCR E2 Class.

He is painted blue with red lining and is number 1 in the North Western Railway (NWR) fleet.

Thomas was given his own branch line, which he operates with his two coaches, Annie and Clarabel. He was built in 1913 and arrived on Sodor in 1915.

66p – ‘James’
‘James the Red Engine’ is a mixed-traffic engine, which means he is just as capable of pulling coaches as trucks.

He has a 2-6-0 (“Mogul”) wheel arrangement and is engine number 5 on the North Western Railway, the Fat Controller’s railway on the Island of Sodor.

James first appeared in the Railway Series in 1946, in the book Thomas the Tank Engine. Two books in the series, no. 3 James the Red Engine and no. 28 James and the Diesel Engines are dedicated to James.

68p – ‘Percy’
‘Percy the Small Engine’ is a saddle tank engine of indeterminate origins.

He is painted green with red stripes and is number 6 in the NWR fleet.

He is a cheeky little engine with a strong sense of adventure, who doesn’t let anyone push him around, which sometimes gets him into trouble. He arrived on Sodor on 1949 during a railway strike.

76p – ‘Daisy’
‘Daisy’ is a unique diesel railcar, painted green with yellow lining (similar to the livery of British Railways DMUs in the 1960s), and was built specially for use on the Ffarquhar branch of the NWR.

Her number is D1 whereas she originally carried the number 52627. She was built in 1956 and arrived on Sodor in 1961. She first appeared in the book Branch Line Engines.

?1.00 – ‘Toby’
‘Toby the Tram Engine’ is a 0-6-0 steam tram engine who works on the same branch line as Thomas.

He is painted brown and blue and is number 7 in the NWR fleet.

He is a wise, experienced engine who knows all there is to know about running a branch line. He was built in 1903 and arrived on Sodor in 1951.

?1.10 – ‘Gordon’
‘Gordon the Big Engine’ is a ‘Pacific’ (4-6-2) tender engine.

He is painted blue with red stripes and is number 4 in the NWR fleet.

He is the biggest engine on the railway, and pulls the Express. He is also very boastful and proud, but good at heart. He was built and arrived on Sodor in 1922.
