It is Christmas eve, and Thomas wishes he was safe and warm in his shed with the other engines. But Thomas is a Really Useful Engine and has several important deliveries to make. Will he get home in time to make sure his stocking has been carefully hung? And when a big blizzard blows up, Thomas fears that Father Christmas may not find the engine shed at all.
The Reverend W Awdry first started telling his young son tales of Thomas, Percy and the other Really Useful Engines in 1944. In 1945, he started writing the tales down, and upon their publication they were immediately embraced by train lovers in Great Britain and worldwide. Before his death in 1997, the Reverend wrote 26 volumes of stories that continue to thrill generations of young readers.

When Thomas pulled up near the entrance to the school, some of the teachers came out

and helped to organize the unloading of the packages. The children were having a snowball fight. Splat! A red-haired boy in a green coat threw a large snowball that hit Thomas right in the side of his boiler. “Peeeeeeeep!” Thomas laughed. Everyone was helping to unload Thomas now, and he waited until the red-haired boy was standing right beside him. Thomas let out a blast of steam. “Whoosh!” The steam loosened the snow on Thomas’ roof, which slid off and landed right on the red-haired boy’s

Christmas what a Really Useful Engine I am!” Soon Thomas could see the lights of the hospital through the falling snow. As he pulled up, there were children at the windows, cheering his arrival. While the doctors and nurses helped to unload all of the parcels, Sir Topham Hatt came out of the hospital and walked right up to Thomas. “Thomas,” said Sir Topham Hatt, “I have a very important job for you.

Ballahoo. It is snowing too hard for his mother to come get this toy train. I need you to take this up to his house.” “Of course,” peeped Thomas. “I am a Really Useful Engine! But, sir, my stocking wasn’t hung before I left. Father Christmas will forget me.” “Nonsense, Thomas,” said Sir Topham Hatt. “Father Christmas will be as proud of you as I am.” So Thomas headed off again. By now the wind was howling all around him, and there was so much snow blowing that it was very hard to see. Thomas,
