“Goodbye Thomas! You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop - we buses have to work, you know. Goodbye!”
―Bertie being cheeky to Thomas

Bertie, re-titled Bertie the Bus in 2011 is the twenty-seventh book in the My Thomas Story Library series.


Thomas meets a bus named Bertie, who claims to be faster than Thomas. To settle this they stage a race. Bertie manages to stay in front for the majority of the race, but Thomas passes him at the tunnel and barely wins. The Fat Controller then warns the pair not to race at dangerous speeds.
