Thomas is The Star of The Series. He Has His Own Coaches, Annie and Clarabel. Thomas is the No. 1 engine of Sir Topham Hatt's Railway and has been seen in any episode, special, and layout video, whether cameo, into, main or minor character. He is Percy's and Toby's Best friend.
Thomas is a rather cheeky, but good hearted engine and generally behaves well, except when he is getting into mishap. He loves teasing the others and, on occasion, brags about his superiority, but is always brought down to earth in due course. If Thomas has one major character flaw, it is that he is forgetful, and slightly impatient. However, he is also optimistic and idealistic.
Thomas is based on the Billington E2-Class 0-6-0T engines built for the London,Brighton and South Coast Railway between 1913and 1915, He is apparently one of the last batch built. The E2s were introduced between 1913 and 1916 to replace earlier members of the E1 class. The last five in the class had extended side tanks, but all engines had two inside cylinders and driving wheels.
After many years, all of the Billington E2s, both original and modified, spent their first working years at Southampton Docks and they were all scrapped by 1963, the very last pair being numbers 31204 and 31209, the latter being amongst the last batch. There is, however, a campaign with the aim to Build a New E2, and Number it 110.
Thomas has a slight modification of having wheel Splashers over his front wheels whereas The Original E2s did not.
Thomas was Built in 1915.
Thomas is painted in the North Western Railway's blue.
Whose the Favorite Engine?Edit
In Keekre24/ThomasWoodenRailway's Series, Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Wooden Railway Adventures: there is not an episode where Thomas does not appear in whether it's making cameos or talking.
He also makes appearances in Keekre24/ThomasWoodenRailway's movies and Remakes of the episodes from The Thomas & Friends Series. This is just proof that The Series Has Thomas in it and that it's sometimes revolved around Thomas as well but the kicker is that Edward is Keekre24/ThomasWoodenRailway's favorite engine and Thomas isn't.
No. 1 Engine:Edit
Thomas is the No. 1 engine of The North Western Railway and brags to the other engines about it like it's something but most of the engines can't see why Sir Topham Hatt chose Thomas to be his No. 1 engine… most most engines just don't like the fact of Thomas being No. 1 and like to ignore it very often.
However, some things just never change including the fact Thomas will still brag about it and never stop.
Playing a Part:Edit
In Keekre24/ThomasWoodenRailway's movie Claw of the Law, Sir Topham Hatt takes Thomas to the Place Where He and Gordon have been having "chats" for The past season and it turns out that Gordon was there to see his Brother and Thomas plays a part in this by getting Rickety to fetch the Gold Dust from The Magic Buffers.
Tidmouth Sheds is a place where engines rest but when it's Thomas and his friends, it's rest and having fun. The basic routine at Tidmouth Sheds is have fun before you go to sleep but usually it's often just Thomas telling engines about stuff, too. But either way, the routine is never over mainly for Thomas…
