Reginald Dalby (hated the name "Clarence") was an artist who did the early works of The Railway Series. During the Second World War, Dalby worked as an intelligence officer for MI9 devising methods of "Escape and Evasion" for crews baling out behind enemy lines. He re-established himself as an artist after he was offered a job at an intelligence post in India with Lord Louis Mountbatten, but declined the offer.

There have been several complete box sets of The Railway Series library by the Reverend W. Awdry. The first was released in the 1990s and named The Rev. W. Awdry's Famous Railway Series Station book box by Kaye and Ward Ltd and Heinemann. Further box sets were released by Egmont and Random House in 2005 with Thomas the Tank Engine: The Classic Library. To mark the Reverend W. Awdry's centenary in 2011, Egmont re-released the box set as Thomas the Tank Engine: The Centenary Library

Comments: (7)
My three year old loves all things Thomas and he enjoys these stories as well. As the original stories they are less sugar-coated than the later picture books. Most focus on a train who misbehaves then gets his comeuppance. The illustrations are beautiful.

The physical packaging is quite nice. Both the box and the books have stood up to pummeling by my son.

The stories included are:

* Thomas and Gordon, Thomas' Train, Thomas and the Trucks, Thomas and the Breakdown Train

* Coal, The Flying Ripper, Gordon's Whistle, Percy and the Trousers, Henry's Sneeze

* Toby and the Stout Gentleman, Thomas in Trouble, Dirty Objects, Mrs. Kyndley's Christmas

* James and the Top-Hat, James and the Boot-lace, Troublesome Trucks, James and the Express

* Off the Rails, Leaves, Down the Mine, Paint Pots and Queens

* Percy and the Signal, Duck Takes Charge, Percy and Harold, Percy's Promise
Wow these are nice little hardback books and we are really enjoying them. There are six books in the collection and they are about Toby (my personal favorite), Henry, Percy, Gordon, James and, of course, Thomas the Tank Engine.

If you are looking at this collection you, no doubt, are familiar with Rev. Awdry's stories so I will only add that the pictures in this series are nice and the books are a good size for 3 year old hands and the paper seems pretty strong so far, so that none of the pages are either wrinkled yet or torn.

A nice way to bridge away from the television series or the tapes into something that is more "useful"...reading! We give it 6 thumbs up. Mom, dd, and ds.
These are the original stories, and SO resemble the TV shows that my son was addicted to for a few years. These were among the first books he was able to read to himself. Stories are great--just the show, each ends with a little moral lesson, the characters are likable and not too complex, the whole thing is really just so honest and timeless and wonderful for little ones. Can't recommend this set enough. Even though my son has moved on to dinos, LEGOs, and action heros, this boxed set still has pride of placement on his bookshelves.
These books were a BIG hit for my son's fourth birthday. He adores anything Thomas! I like them because they have great illustrations from Rev. Awdry. Another great characteristic of this set is that when the books are all lined up inside the box, there is a different segment of a train and coaches on each book spine and together they make a completed 'picture'. The only semi-complaint I have is that the books aren't quite as big as I had hoped they would be and some of the pages don't have full illustrations, but segments. However, overall I (and my son) are very pleased with the purchase and I would buy them again!
My 3 year old son loves all the books in this set! The books are hard covered and quite sturdy and the size is very good for kids to hold. The stories in all the books are not too long and fun to read. Although some of the words in the stories are less commonly used words even for adult, they didn't cause my son to lose interest in the stories. Highly recommended to parents if your kids love Thomas & Friends.
My son is almost 3, and these books are way ahead of his listening level. But he likes to look at the pictures and I make up abbreviated stories for the pictures. B/c the size he does pick them to look at pretty often.

The content of the stories is more for 6 and up, in my opinion. They are explaining morals, and sometimes a little harsh. But I feel like -- until a certain age, kids don't understand cause and effect enough to know why things are happening in a story like this. (Like, why was one engine mean to another one? There is a reason an older child could understand and learn from, but maybe a younger child would just see the bad behavior without understanding the context.)
Came quite used. Still readable, but disappointed they're so beat up
I have to do a lot of rewording and such. I appreciate that these are the original stories, but it's a little hard for my daughter to maintain interest because there seems to be a lot of technical terms. On the other hand, she loves the older DVDs we have.
