Trivia

  • Despite its name, it does not contain all of the volumes of the Railway Series, as it is lacking Christopher Awdry's works. A sequel of sorts to this book was released in 2007, named Thomas the Tank Engine: The New Collection, and it contains all of Christopher Awdry's books, bar Thomas and his Friends.
  • The 2005 edition features artwork print sheets by C. Reginald Dalby.
  • The 70th Anniversary edition was published on the same day from thirty years, after the television series had made it's debut on UK televisions on 9 October 1984.

Goofs

  • The endpaper features Bertie with a yellow face.
