It’s Thomas & Friends 70th Birthday!

Thomas has made many friends and been on many adventures over the years and in 2015, Thomas & Friends™ is 70 years young!


Based on stories of the railways, Thomas & Friends invites children to enter a world of imagination on the island of Sodor . 

It’s an idealised world created by the Reverend W. Awdry, where trains are powered by steam… and they talk! With a strong community ethos typified by a universal willingness to help, practice good manners and hard work, Thomas and his friends continue to inspire, excite and entertain children for 70 years and beyond.

Friendship remains at the heart of the brand with more engaging storytelling, more dynamic and compelling content and a whole host of new adventures for Thomas & Friends this year. As well as the launch of series 19 which features the No.1 Blue engine and his familiar friends James, Percy, Emily, Edward, Henry, Gordon, and the Fat Controller, this exciting milestone year sees the release of the mini-series Dinos & Discoveries as well as the new movie Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure

As children embark on fun and exciting journeys with their engine friends, adventures unfold that lead to timeless fun and discovery.
