Thomas is a Tank Engine who lives on the Island of Sodor.
Thomas was built in 1915 and arrived on Sodor the same year. He is based off a Billinton E2-Class 0-6-0T locomotive at was built at Brighton Works. When Thomas arrived on Sodor he was a pilot at Vicarstown Station. In 1925; James had a accident, Thomas came to the rescue and as a reward, The Fat Controller gave him his own branch line. Since then he has made many new friends such as: Percy, Toby, Bertie, Mavis and Daisy aswell as having many adventures. In 1990 he went to The National Railway Museum in York and in 2005, Thomas, Percy and Toby triple headed along the Ulfstead Extension.
Thomas is a cheeky fussy tank engine, but he works hard too. He can be quite conceited, but always learns his lesson in the end and he knows that he can never be as strong and fast as main line engines, but along as he's working hard, The Fat Controller is pleased that he is a really useful engine.
