Item Description...
Four classic stories about Edward, the kindest engine in the shed. Edward may be old, but he is very loyal. Whether it is with a silly cow on the line or a scary runaway train, Edward is always eager to help out.
In 1944, a country vicar, the Reverend W Awdry, wrote the stories he had been telling his two young sons about a group of engines with very recognizable personalities. In 1945, the first book featuring Thomas and the other Really Useful Engines was published, and in the 60 years since, the tales of these friendly engines have become beloved classics around the world.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful!  Sep 7, 2007
Oh, I must agree. This book is great! My 22-months little boy loves this book and all others from the original railway series. I was concerned at the beginning that it was going to be over his head (and it is, he does not understand everything that is read to him), but he does listened quietly every story and ask for more and more!!! When he looks at the books by himself he "reads" the book aloud and points at the pictures and he comes to me and shows them to me. I guess he's "telling" me the stories. It is very nice to watch and hear. And I agree with other reviewers about the quality of the pages. the book is a hardcover and the pages are thick and strong. My son takes them everywhere and not one page has been torn yet. I think this is a must buy.
My 3 year old son loves this series  Jan 19, 2007
This book has a bit more sadness than earlier books in the series. Edward is crying in the first story becuase he never leaves the shed and the other engines pick on him for being old. Then in another story, he helps one of the favorite TV Show charactors who's scheduled for scrapping (don't want to spoil the suprise by saying who.)

The original books are FAR BETTER than the newer picture stories based on the TV show. My son loves the show too but ignores the newer books now that we have the originals.

I read several reviews on The Railway series where Moms thought the railway series was too dark/scary. I disagree and love to have my son snuggle up to the very last word in a book that's pretty long for someone his age.
Love it!  Feb 25, 2006
My 2.5 year old loves these Railway Series books. The illustrations in the books are great. The paper is durable but some of the hardback covers have not held up to everyday toddler usage.
