Thomas the Tank Engine pulls in to platform 4 at Bolton Street Station after passing beneath the Jubilee Way road bridge.
One of Britainís most famous and recognisable (albeit fictional!) steam locomotives, Thomas is a character from The Railway Series books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher. Thomas first appeared in 1946 when he was the focus of the four short stories contained in the second book in the series, "Thomas the Tank Engine". He is a cheeky little engine and tries very hard to be a very useful. He became the most popular character in the series, and is the title character in the accompanying television spin-off series, Thomas & Friends. All of the locomotives in The Railway Series were based on prototypical engines; Thomas is based on the E2 Class of locomotives, the London Brighton and South Coast Railway 0-6-0 E2 with extended side tanks. He is easily identified by his No. 1 and bright blue colour. On this day, he was giving rides along the sidings between Bolton Street Station and the Baron Street works as part of the very popular "Day out with Thomas" on the East Lancashire Railway.
