TrackMaster Thomas Comes to the Rescue

Thomas and his Friends are fantastic toys for young children, they are a lot of fun and excellent for teaching them about relationships and emotions. As Thomas and his friends continue on with daily life and interact with the other engines, they learn to overcome their differences and work together, becoming friends in the process. This encourages learning for children in a fun way, one that they can relate to, and helping them to understand their own emotions. Take the time to talk about the movies as you watch them and help your children relate it to their own life, so that they too, can accept other peoples differences and become friends.

TrackMaster Remote Control Thomas. Thomas is a very proud engine, and a little bit cheeky. He gets into lots of scrapes, but often because he is eager to do things. However, he has a good attitude and quickly gets things sorted out and if off playing again. He is a very lovable engine, and most children’s favourite. This train is very easy for young children to use, just push or pull the handle and the engine will go chugging forward or backward. You can hear the engine whistle and also the Thomas and friends theme song.


TrackMaster Percy and Coach. Percy is a contented and happy little engine who enjoys his work in the yard. Percy is easy to get along with, and often the other engines try to take advantage of him. Percy considers Thomas to be his best friend and a favourite with children. This Percy train can be pushed around the track or just flip the switch and he chugs along the track by himself.

TrackMaster Whiff with his Cargo Car is a really useful engine, and he loves his job. What does he do? He collects all the rubbish on the Island of Sodor, a job that no-one else wants! Whiff isn’t worried about what he looks like or smells like, and often has bits of rubbish stuck on his engine. Whiff enjoys working and getting the job done. Whiff might only be a small engine, but he comes with a big heart.

TrackMaster See Inside Mail Cars. This is a fun carriage to add to the Thomas collection. It allows the little engineer to open the carriage and see the detailed cargo interior. You will find bags of mail and a sorting station heading around the Island of Sodor to deliver the mail. Similar to this carriage, is a livestock carriage which has animals and feed, and the passenger carriage which has some residents from the Island of Sodor dining and relaxing as they travel.

TrackMaster Toby and the Whistling Woods. Toby is a little brown engine with cowcatchers and sideplates, allowing him to go on tracks along the side of the road, tracks that other engines aren’t allowed to go. Toby’s carriage is called Henrietta.

The Whistling Woods is an exciting adventure for Toby and your little engineer as they go travelling through Whistling Woods together. Passing through the trees causes them to rattle and shake, and as Toby goes under the tree a branch falls and he must quickly move on.  A fun adventure for all.


What a great way for kids to learn about life… through fun!

Thomas and His Friends

Hey kids! Are you a fan of one of the best children’s television series, Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends? Do you want to know about the characters of this series? Then here is a list of some of  the characters. I hope you enjoy learning about them.

This series was first broadcasted on television in the year 1984. It was based on the book “The Railway Series” written by Reverend Wilbert Awdry to his son Christopher Awdry, who was at that time suffering from ill-health. Rev. Wilbert Awdry wrote this series to help overcome the loneliness his son was feeling during his illness.

As years passed by, the series became famous and has became one of the most watched series that young children love. As time progressed, more characters were added to the story.


1 Thomas is the main character and the protagonist of the first five series, but plays a different role on the series “Day of the Diesels”. He is best described as a cheeky and fussy engine on the Island of Sodor. He is also known to some as the 0-6-0 blue tank engine, who often gets into scrapes because of his excess of excitement. He is an extremely proud engine who runs on his own rails, together with his two coaches “Annie and Clarabel”.

2 Edward is also one of the main characters in the railway series. He is the wisest and the oldest. He is intelligent and a very skillful engine.  During the 10th season of the series, his personality changed a bit. He carries the 4-4-0 engine that has red stripes on it and is also has the number 2 painted on his body.

3 Henry is painted green with red stripes, he is the 4-6-0 engine carrier and is the number 3 engine. He is pretentious and often disheartened. He is also intelligent and an engine who loves and appreciates nature.

4 Gordon is an blue engine with stripes of red and carries the 4-6-2 engine in this series. Sometimes he thinks he is better than the rest of the engines, and learns his lesson afterwards. His feeling of being superior is due to the fact that he is one of the strongest engines in the group and often carries the large loads.

5 James is coloured red with gold stripes and has a dome. He is the 2-6-0 mixed-traffic engine in the group… the number 5 engine. He is a supporting protagonist train.

6 Percy is the number 6 engine, he carries the 0-4-0 saddle tank engine with green and red stripes. He is the youngest and cheeky. He is an engine who has fun teasing the other engines in this series.

7 Toby is the watcher of the group who works with Thomas. He is the number 7 engine in the group and he is also one of the oldest, most careful and wisest member of all the trains.

Emily is a Scottish Stirling single engine that is painted dark green and has stripes of gold. She is the character that appeared in the 7th and 8th season.
