Emily, re-titled Emily the Stirling Engine in 2011, is the twenty-fifth book in the My Thomas Story Library series.


Emily comes to Sodor and gets to know Thomas, but Thomas soon takes a sudden dislike after Emily takes Annie and Clarabel. After saving both Thomas and Oliver from a crash, however, Emily soon makes new friends. Later, Emily takes the Black Loch run and finds it rather scary after hearing a story of a monster, but she finds out that the monster of Black Loch turns out to be a family of seals.




  • This book is based on the seventh series episode, Emily's New Coaches and the eighth series episode, Emily's New Route.
  • This once came free with a Thomas Magazine.
  • In 2015, this book (along with five others) was sold as a website-exclusive book pack with a Wooden Railway Emily.
  • On the front cover of some editions, the top part of Emily's funnel is black instead of gold and has pink lips like she is wearing lipstick (like Rosie). This also happened to Molly.
  • The same front covers of the editions as the wrong top funnel colour, and an illustration in the book, Emily's step ladder is black instead of emerald.


  • In the second to last illustration, Thomas' wheels are oversized.
  • Edward is depicted with a 2-6-0 wheel arrangement.
