Thomas is a short magazine story.
On the night before Christmas, Thomas had pulled his last train and was all on his own at a station on his branch line. Suddenly, much to Thomas' delight, he saw that he wasn't alone. Lights shone and voices began to sing, it was his driver and some carollers. Thomas was thrilled that he won't be alone any longer.
