Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends (Later known as 'Thomas and Friends') is a children's TV series based on the Railway series of books by Rev. W. Awdry. The series started in 1984 and has run to date (2018) for twenty-two seasons and is ongoing. Hundreds of books have been published over the years and this gallery currently reflects my collection or books I know about that I want for my collection. I do have a lot in my collection so this is a rather large gallery. To see the cover variations / title changes of the Egmont / Dean books issued from 2006 onwards, see the Thomas and Friends Cover Variants side gallery.
