Thomas is a short magazine story.
On the night before Christmas, Thomas has pulled his last train and is all on his own at a station on his branch line. Suddenly, much to Thomas' delight, he sees that he is not alone. Lights shine and voices begin to sing, it is his driver and some carollers. Thomas is thrilled that he will not be alone any longer.
