Thomas the Tank Engine is a fictional anthropomorphic steam locomotive in The Railway Series books by the Rev. W. Awdry and his son, Christopher. First appearing in the second book in the series in 1946, he is a tank engine, painted blue with red lining, and displays the running number one. All of the locomotives in The Railway Series were based on prototypical engines; he has origins in the E2 Class designed by Lawson Billinton in 1913.
In 1979, the British writer/producer Britt Allcroft came across the books, mortgaged her house and used her savings to bring the stories to life as the television series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends (later simplified to Thomas and Friends). It became an award-winning hit around the world, with a vast range of spin-off commercial products.
