The Fabulous Thomas The Train Characters Description

Author : Walker Keeley


Thomas the train Engines

Every child on the planet has heard at least once about Thomas the train Engine and his friends. Since the '40s when the first book written by Rev. W. Awdry was published, the popularity of the human-like steam engines continues to be steadily increasing.
According to the "Thomas and Friends" TV show, there are eight main characters within the Thomas universe, as well as the Fat Controller. Furthermore, there's additional cast to support the primary characters.

Thomas the tank engine may be the central character. He is described as being nasty, but he always does the right thing ultimately. He's a blue with red lining steam engine, which has the number one written all over his body. He's his own branch, where he rests his two coaches, Annie and Clarabel.

Edward the Blue Engine is among the characters which appeared in the first Thomas series. He is among the big steam engines, a tender locomotive with red stripes, with the # 2 written over this body. He is able to transport both passengers and freight. He's very kind and polite, always prepared to help the others.

Henry the Green Engine is, along Edward and Gordon, one of the big engines which appeared first in the Thomas book series. He gets ill very easily and this is why other engines see him to be lazy. He pulls trucks and coaches so when Gordon is absent, he also hauls the Express.

Gordon the large Engine is a blue steam engine with the number four engraved on his tender. He considers himself the most crucial engine since he's the largest. He takes his job seriously, he pulls the Express and high trains, but states he prefers passenger trains.

James the Red Engine is really a mixed-traffic steam engine, having the ability to pull both coaches and trucks. He is the fifth engine within the Fat Controller's railway station.

Percy the Small Engine is the sixth engine within the Fat Controller's railway. He is the smallest, youngest and nastiest of his fellow locomotives. He was triggered the island once the big engines were on strike.

Toby the Tram Engine is the only engine with cowcatchers to remove any obstacle. He's the seventh engine in the railway station. He's Christopher Awdry's favourite character.

Emily may be the first female engine to feature within the TV series, even though first female engine mentioned in the book was Daisy, the diesel engine. However, she's one of the main eight characters of the series. Her colour is green and she has driving wheels. She's sometimes hard to work with. She doesn't come in the book series.

Body fat Controller may be the head of the railway station on Sodor Island. He first appears in the first book from the series, and his real name (Sir Topham Hatt) is first mentioned in the sixth book, "Henry the Green Engine".
Other characters have a supportive role.
