Thomas is an old side tank engine who has been on the Island since the beginning. He is a cheeky,fussy little tank engine with a big heart. Thomas is the poster boy of Sodor, and is loved by everyone. He runs the Ffarquhar branch line with Annie and Clarabel, his two faithful coaches. Thomas was not very keen of more diesels on Sodor, and he hated Pumpkin with a passion when he first came. When Thomas finally realized he wasn't trying to take over the railway, he settled down and grew to like Pumpkin.
Thomas is based on a London, Brighton and South Coast Railway E2 0-6-0T #105 circa 1915.
